Watkins Elementary School: COVID-19 NotificationArticles
A letter to the Peabody and Watkins community was sent on March 1, 2021, notifying them of a positive COVID-19 case in the building when students were present on February 23, 2021.
Additionally, since the impacted in-person classroom cohort must quarantine for 14 days, students in that classroom will transition to at-home, virtual learning for the time being. All other in-person programing at our building will continue as usual.
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.
