W6PSPO Updates – March 19, 2020

Dear Ward 6 Public Schools Parent Organization members,
I hope everyone in the W6PSPO family is staying healthy and safe.
Our schools have been working hard to ensure students are fed, and getting resources in place so learning can continue remotely.  We greatly appreciate all they are doing.  As homeschooling sets in, we appreciate more and more the hard work teachers do.
Many people are sharing on-line and other resources that parents can use as they home school.  I’ve started a google doc with a few ideas, and encourage everyone to add to the list.
There is one sure thing everyone can do now, and that’s be counted in the 2020 Census!  The U.S. Census Bureau has mailed census IDs to homes across the country.  Fill out your census information online before April 1.  Completing your census information by April 1 will help conserve natural resources, save taxpayer money, and process data more efficiently!
Unfortunately, Bike-to-School Day is not going to be held this year.  We hope we will all be able to celebrate Walk-to-School Day in October.  http://www.walkbiketoschool.org/
For the time being, the DC Council budget oversight hearings have been postponed.  As we learn more about when these hearings will be rescheduled, we will share it.  The Coalition for DC Public Schools and Communities (C4DC) recently released a proposal that seeks investments in DCPS.  When you have time, please take a look at the proposal.
