Dear Achievement Prep Families:

We hope that you and your loved ones are all well during this unprecedented time for our country. We hope you are all taking this virus very seriously and practicing social distancing.

Message re COVID-19 Case:
The leadership of Achievement Prep has been informed that a staff member at our middle school campus recently tested positive for COVID-19 during the school building closure period. While the origin is unsure, it appears the employee contracted the virus after schools were closed.
The employee has not been at the school during the closure period, including in recent days. Out of respect for the employee’s confidentiality, we cannot release any personal information.
Nevertheless, Achievement Prep continues to take proper steps to ensure all school buildings are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized for use both now and when scholars and staff return. We are following all recommended guidance from The DC Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including best practices for cleaning, hygiene, and social distancing.
As we have all been advised, what we are doing now – social distancing and self-quarantining if you believe you have been exposed – is the best way to ensure this virus does not spread. Should you feel ill or like you have symptoms, please contact your doctor. Our best remedy is social distancing and self-quarantine.

Our Platinum Teachers will hold office hours from 9am – 11am and 2pm – 4pm daily to support scholar learning beginning Monday, April 6th at 9am.  Please take advantage of these virtual office hours via ZOOM.  These are meant for you, as family members to ask questions, or scholars can log on directly and get support from their teachers and peers.

We miss you calls:
We miss our scholars and our families. During this distance learning period, we will be calling you and our scholars daily simply to check in and say hello. Many staff members are setting up informal gatherings of scholars so they can see one another as well. You matter greatly to us and we want to make sure our community remains strong during this time. Please look for these daily calls as our staff members are anxious to talk to our scholars each day!

We thank you in advance for your continued support during this time. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need anything. You can call the school directly (calls are forwarded to Ms. Tyree for MS and Ms. Chambers for ES) or you can email us at:
