The DC Department of Health requires universal indoor masking regardless of vaccination status except while eating, drinking, or sleeping. Please make sure your child has masks that fit well and that are at least two-layers of fabric.

GDS requires masking outdoors on campus for adults and students in the LMS division. Masks can be removed while students are actively engaged in high-intensity outdoor athletics.

Per federal mandate, masks are still required on buses. Masking policies refer to GDS events only. Parents using the playground as part of community use of space on weekends and evenings are responsible for following DC masking requirements.

We will continue to reevaluate our masking policy throughout the year.
