Benjamin Banneker High School: COVID-19 Notification


A letter to the Banneker community was sent on July 13, 2021, notifying them of a positive COVID-19 case in the building when students were present on July 9, 2021.

Additionally, since impacted in-person cohorts must quarantine for 10 days, we have paused in person instruction at our building and Summer Acceleration cohorts will not report for in person learning during this time.

In addition to following all health and safety guidance issued by DC Health and the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) regarding COVID-19, DC Public Schools commits to notifying a school community regarding a confirmed positive case of a staff member or student in a building where students are present.
