Our teachers, administrators, and staff have been busier than ever creating a distance learning experience for our nearly 1,000 students across PreK-12th grades. Our priority has always been the well-being of our students, staff and families. During this unprecedented time, we are committed to keeping our students engaged and learning to the best of our ability.
Our dedicated teachers have been checking in with students frequently to support their distance learning and overall well-being.
We are all adapting to this new structure of distance learning, because our community needs us. In the past weeks, we loaned out more than 200 Chromebooks to middle and high school students to make sure they had access to the resources they need. We have been providing free meals to anyone under the age of 18, regardless of their home school. We are also supporting our families in need with grocery gift cards and more during this uncertain period.
Our Families & Friends Giving Fund helps cover the additional costs we are taking on to provide high-quality remote learning experiences and supports for our families through initiatives such as:
- Tablets for our youngest learners to help close the digital divide.
- Additional Chromebooks for our middle and high school students, many of whom are sharing computers with their siblings.
- Meals for D.C children until school reopens.
- Hotspots for families that do not have internet access at home.
- And so much more!
We know that the needs of our community are likely to only grow!
You can help us expand our capacity to best serve our community during this difficult time by donating to Capital City and supporting our Families & Friends Giving Fund.
