Make Sure Your Child Is Up-To-Date On Their Required Shots, Including COVID-19!

 

DC Public Schools works closely with DC Health to ensure the health and safety of our students, staff, and community. District law and regulations require all schools to ensure students are fully immunized to attend school, and we know that childhood immunizations are critical to keeping our community safe.

Now is the time for families to schedule an annual wellness visit with your child’s doctor or attend a neighborhood or school-based vaccine clinic.

 

New for the 2022-2023 School Year, all students ages 12 and older are required to have the COVID-19 vaccine to attend school.

If you need a COVID-19 vaccine or booster, visit your local COVID Center.

Cooke will host a mobile vaccination clinic on August 10th. Pre-registration is required. Sign-up HERE!

Early Dismissal 

Any student needing to leave school before the dismissal time must notify the school main office prior to 11 am. If you do not notify the school, the student will not be dismissed early. Please remember that instruction takes place until the end of each school day. Picking up your child early will cause them to miss a lot of instruction. Please make every attempt to make appointments after school.  

Late Pickups 

Dismissal is promptly at 3:15 pm. Please make every effort to pickup your child on time. We will give a 10-minute grace period. Students that are not picked up by 3:30 will be brought to the office to wait. Students that are picked up late must be reported to Child Protective Services.
