(Washington, DC) — A District elementary school is the latest addition to the list of schools returning to remote learning due to COVID. D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Lewis Ferebee has announced that Whitier Elementary School will move to virtual learning through December 22nd due to an increase in COVID cases at the school.
So far there have been 14 cases reported among students and staff at the school prompting the pivot to online learning. Whitier’s decision comes days after third and fourth grade students at J.O. Wilson Elementary School returned to virtual learning because of coronavirus cases this week at the school.
