W6PSPO Meets Tuesday, Aug 17, 2021 @ 7PM

Dear Ward 6 Public Schools Parent Organization members,

W6PSPO will meet on Tuesday, August 17, at 7 pm. 

  1. Dr. Kevin Washburn, manager of Library Programs for DCPS, will join us to share what DCPS is doing to ensure every school has a librarian this school year.  
  2. We will also discuss school reopening.  We all hoped we’d be in a better place at the start of this school year.   We are now two weeks out from the start of school, and in a rapidly changing situation with the highly contagious Delta variant, more children becoming sick with Covid-19, no approved vaccines for children under 12, and many people eligible for a vaccine remaining unvaccinated.  Our discussion will be an opportunity to share concerns and ideas for safely reopening schools.  
  3. Continue to help spread the word to anyone who is eligible to get vaccinated about the many ways to get vaccinated  in DC.  https://coronavirus.dc.gov/page/get-vaccinated 
  4. If you registered for a previous W6PSPO meeting, the link you received for that meeting will work for this and future W6PSPO meetings.  If you don’t already have the meeting link, you can register at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZAudOqsqDorHdOqNZKiWVfvLL0TPp_az3Wp.
    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
