Whittier Education Campus: COVID-19 Notification


A letter to the Whittier community was sent on March 1, 2021, notifying them of a positive COVID-19 case in the building when students were present on February 25, 2021.

Additionally, since impacted in-person classroom cohorts must quarantine for 14 days, students in those classrooms will transition to at-home, virtual learning for the time being. In-person student programming at the building will resume on Friday, March 12.

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.
