In keeping with the current guidance from the CDC and DC Health, masking is optional for students and staff when at all of our campuses, indoors and outdoors, and at the community office. Friendship is committed to ensuring a safe and supportive environment for all members of the community, regardless of whether or not they choose to wear a mask. We encourage those who are most comfortable continuing to mask to exercise their personal choice to do so. In addition, Friendship will continue to provide masks to those who want them.
Throughout the pandemic, Friendship has benefited from your commitment as we’ve all worked together to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment, despite the impact of COVID-19.
Friendship will monitor COVID-19 infection rates published by the CDC and DC Health and reserve the right to reinstate indoor mask mandates and surveillance testing if conditions warrant it.
Based on our continued receipt of supplies, we expect to continue our rapid antigen testing program. Friendship continues to strongly encourage all eligible members of our community to get their COVID-19 vaccine and boosters.
We welcome your feedback on this approach and encourage you to share your perspective by emailing email@example.com.
