ReOpen DCB, FAQs, and Immunization Reminder

Head of School Message | July 15, 2020

 

Hello DC Bilingual community,

Last week we shared an overview of DC Bilingual’s reopening learning plan and priorities. A working group representing a cross section of our school community including staff, parents, and board members developed the plan. While this plan is subject to change, here is an overview of DC Bilingual’s current plan for the 2020-21 school year. 

In addition to reviewing the plan, we created a FAQ document that responds to a number of themes across the questions we’ve received by parents and our staff since we first shared this information last week. We will continue to update this document as we refine our approach further and if COVID-related circumstances in the DMV area change.

Please be sure to complete this questionnaire by July 20 so that we can confirm the learning pathway of your student(s) by August 14. Your survey responses will ensure that we provide the best possible learning experience for our students and families. As well, please note that the week of August 17, we will offer several virtual town hall meetings to review the learning plans and address any further questions. If you choose the hybrid model via the family questionnaire and after the virtual town hall meetings, you would like to enroll your student(s) in the virtual model or withdraw from DC Bilingual, we ask that you email enrollment@dcbilingual.org by August 26th.

Complete the Family Questionnaire

Main Office Updates

Effective in the 2020-2021 school year, the District requires all schools to implement the city’s updated immunization attendance policy, which requires schools to both verify and track student compliance year round. 

Please submit your health & up-to-date immunization forms as soon as possible for processing. Below are your  options:

  1. Enrollment platform: https://dcbilingual.org/enroll-at-dcb/ (will be available as of 7/20) 
  2. Submit via email to enrollment@dcbilingual.org 
  3. Mail to the school: Attn: Main Office, 33 Riggs Rd. NE, Washington, DC 20011

With respect to any student that lacks up to date immunizations, the District requires that DC Bilingual notify the parent or guardian in writing that within 20 school days from the date of written notification, if the student cannot present necessary immunizations, they will only be allowed to do 100% virtual learning. DC Bilingual will not permit the student inside the school building until they have met compliance standards.

Below are resources regarding the District of Columbia's immunization requirements and we encourage you to visit the Department of Health's website to learn more:
