Welcome

March 13, 2020

Dear Anacostia Families:

We realize that this is an uncertain time as our city grapples with coronavirus (COVID-19). Despite the challenges and concerns this situation presents, we want to assure you that DC Public Schools (DCPS) developed a solid plan to ensure that your child’s education continues during a period of school closure.

Printed Information Packet

DCPS has prepared a hardcopy packet of materials that contains your child’s instructional materials for March 24 to March 31. These activities have been designed to extend prior learning and engage students during the period of school closure. It contains learning activities across content areas that were planned for all DCPS learners, including English Language Learners and students with special needs.*   

Online Instructional Materials

Your child’s instructional materials will also be available online starting on Friday, March 20. We created a special site that houses learning resources for download, gives access to educational online programs, and provides guidance to support your family during this time and ways to request assistance. You can access this mobile-friendly site beginning on March 20 at bit.ly/DCPS_ICP.  

One of the resources for families on this site is Clever, which is DCPS’ gateway to many of our digital learning applications. Visit https://clever.com/in/dcpsk12 to access the programs used by grade in school. Students will login using their student ID and password. Please contact Mr. Renard Dennis (renard.dennis@dc.gov), our school’s technology representative, if they cannot recall their Clever credentials.

In addition to the lessons provided by our school, we encourage families to read, play board games, write in journals, and join in on any other activities you think are appropriate for your child. We will provide additional tips and ideas to engage your child on our DCPS social media accounts, as well as the family resources section of our distance learning site.

We want to reaffirm our commitment to providing your child with accessible, high-quality educational materials. You can rest assured that DC Public Schools is working hard to ensure our students and families have the resources they need to keep be informed, supported, and engaged.

For more information about distance learning, please contact: Jordan.james@k12.dc.gov (English), caylah.green@k12.dc.gov (Math), Trishana.ellis@k12.dc.gov (Sci), Brandi.byrd@k12.dc.gov (Soc Stud), Raven.Dorman@k12.dc.gov and Antionette.Tyrell@k12.dc.gov (Electives).

Kind regards,

William Haith, Principal
Anacostia High School
