DCPS to Resume In-Person Learning for Elementary Students Next Month

As of Nov. 9, about 75% of D.C.’s elementary school students can expect to resume in-person learning amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, public schools Chancellor Lewis Ferebee said Monday.

Some 21,000 students are being prepared for the transition slated to initially take place next month involving two options aimed at preschoolers through fifth graders, DCist reported.

“Learning at home has been positive for many of our students because of the extraordinary work of our teachers,” Ferebee said during a press conference at Wheatley Education Campus in Northeast. “We also know at this time that learning at home is not working for every student.”

Under the first option, about 7,000 students will attend in-person classes led by a teacher. The second option will target about 14,000 students.

Students will participate in recess and lunch, with the “CARE classrooms” opening the week of Nov. 16 and operating five days a week for students in preschool through first grade. Older elementary school students will start in-person classes on Nov. 30.

Participating students will get a half-day off from classes on Wednesdays.
