Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians, 

If you have not yet visited, please do so. 

Right now, our collective priority is on prevention. To help stop the spread of germs, we are urging all residents to:

  • Stay home when sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue
  • Dispose of tissues after use
  • If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

Again, with no confirmed cases in Washington, DC, our priority is prevention. Find more information about coronavirus and tips for preventing the spread of germs at

DCPS Tech Rollout


Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser and DC Public Schools (DCPS) began delivering more than 16,400 technology devices to schools across all eight wards as a part of the Empowered Learner’s Initiative. The initiative is a comprehensive three-year commitment by Mayor Bowser to close the digital divide and empower DCPS students through access to state-of-the-art technology.

Last year, Mayor Bowser made an initial $4.6 million investment in technology to provide every student in grades 3, 6, and 9 with a device to use at school, and students in all other grades will have a 3:1 student-to-device ratio in the classroom. After ensuring schools had the necessary technology infrastructure and providing professional development to educators, classrooms are receiving the Microsoft Surface Go to enhance teaching and learning.
