Welcome to Simon Elementary School


A message from Principal Eborn: 

DCPS is conducting Test to Return for after the long Thanksgiving Day weekend.  COVID Rapid Tests have been distributed to all scholars present this week and should be administered on Sunday, November 27, 2022 before the start of school.  Families and staff should submit their test results here DCPSstrong.com/testing by 9:00 pm. 
Please note, some of the tests have dates that appear to be expired.  All the test kits have been granted a six-month extension by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Please contact the school if you have any questions and/or concerns.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Principal Eborn

Immunization Information 

To attend schools, students must be current with their immunizations. Immunization compliance is documented by submitting a completed Universal Health Certificate to the school at the time of enrollment.
A series of medical forms, DCPS School Enrollment Packet.pdf, should be turned in to the school as part of the enrollment process, and any updated forms throughout the school year should be submitted to the school nurse.

 DCPS Anti-Discrimination Statement

 DCPS recently issued a new DCPS Anti-Discrimination Policy. To ensure our school communities are aware of DCPS’ commitment to preventing and addressing discrimination, all schools are required to update their school websites with this anti-discrimination statement and translations 

and submit confirmation of their update using this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1uUVDaL0mkSlvFQBiXDPixyBfXtmV62nDVCMFdIX5j4w.  Please note that this information must be placed in a highly visible location on your school’s website and changes must comply with website accessibility standards. Website accessibility standards require that web content is accessible to blind users, deaf users and those who must navigate by voice, screen readers or other assistive technology. (Update: Spanish, Amharic and Chinese translations now available)

Hello Partners,

We are continuously recruiting volunteer tutors to support our school partner sites across the city.  This school year we are working to engage over 2,000 plus volunteers to serve our students.  We are soliciting your assistance in this endeavor and asking if you can please share our recruitment needs in your flyers, newsletters, parent announcements, weekly emails, etc.  Our Program Coordinators, Program Managers and other staff on-site can also provide assistance and answer any immediate questions if needed.

Please find below our QR code that directs individuals to our website to register to volunteer.  If emailing is preferred, individuals can also send an email to volunteerDC@readingpartners.org.  Please share with your network and community. 

We also would like to invite your network and community to participate in our family workshops.
