Cleveland, Garrison and Seaton Elementary Schools are closed for students and staff on Friday, December 19 due to the continuing issues with the water supply at the schools. In addition, students and staff from Duke Ellington High School should all report only to the Meyer campus, as the Garnet-Patterson campus is also impacted by the water issues. All other District of Columbia Public Schools are open as scheduled. [Updated: 10:33p.m.12/18/14]
