D.C. Public Schools Summer Schools to Be Closed Monday
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – D.C. Public Schools (DCPS) officials have announced that, as a result of the major storm that hit the area on Friday night, DCPS schools will be closed tomorrow, Monday, July 2nd. Students and staff assigned to summer school should not report. Moreover, DCPS schools will not be open for use by other community-based organizations (CBOs) or programs, including Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) participants, on July 2nd.
DCPS administrative sites will remain open, and those employees should report work as usual. In addition, essential personnel should report to school as they normally do. Other school-based staff members (non-essential employees) are not required to report to school.
Early tomorrow, DCPS officials will continue to assess the condition of DCPS schools to determine if normal operations will resume on Tuesday, July 3rd.
