Dear Parents: I am very excited to share with you that the glass doors at 1420 Columbia Rd. will be replaced by more secure doors that are metal with glass inserts. The installation of the doors is scheduled for February 16, 2019. After the installation of the new doors we will be scheduling intruder training sessions by the DC Metropolitan Police Department. I’m also looking forward to the planning of a Parent Forum in the next couple of weeks. We will use this get-together to hear what we are doing well and what we need to improve from your perspective. In turn, we will share with you some really great news on the classroom assessment results we’ve recently received.

Estimados padres: Estoy muy emocionada de compartir con ustedes que las puertas de vidrio en 1420 Columbia Rd serán reemplazadas por puertas más seguras que son de metal con inserciones de vidrio. La instalación de las puertas está programada para el 16 de febrero de 2019. Después de la instalación de las nuevas puertas, estaremos programando sesiones de capacitación para protegernos de cualquier intruso por parte del Departamento de Policía Metropolitana de DC. También estoy esperando la planificación de un Foro de Padres en las próximas semanas. Usaremos este encuentro para escuchar lo que estamos haciendo bien y lo que necesitamos mejorar desde su perspectiva. A su vez, compartiremos con usted algunas noticias realmente geniales sobre los resultados de la evaluación en el aula que hemos recibido recientemente.
