Spring Break Travel Guidance
As you consider plans for DCPS Spring Break during the week of April 12, please note DC Health discourages non-essential travel outside of the District, Maryland, or Virginia (DMV). If you are considering a trip beyond the DMV, please take a moment to review this one-pager from DC Health. It includes updated quarantine information for adults who completed their COVID-19 vaccinations, those who recently tested positive for COVID-19, and testing requirements after traveling.
Specifically, children, teachers and staff returning from travel outside the District, Maryland or Virginia,
or any place other than a low-risk state, territory or country, must complete the following before returning to school or child care:
1) Self-monitor and limit daily activities, including staying home from school or child care, for 10 days upon return to the district
2) Limit activities and self-monitor until the student or staff are tested for coronoavirus (COVID-19) (at least 3-5 days after their return) and receive a negative result. Information on testing options in the District of Columbia is available HERE. After a negative result is received, students may return to school, but should continue to self-monitor for 14 days after their return and should quarantine immediately if symptoms develop.
We all play a role to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the health and safety of our students, staff, and one another. “Staycations” among those in your immediate household are a safe way to relax and recharge during Spring Break.
Thank you for your help keeping our community safe!
