Latest Updates from DREAM

Last updated January 10, 2022

  • Effective Friday, January 7, 2022, DREAM has updated our student vaccination policy. Please review the policy here.

  • Effective Monday, November 15, all symptomatic vaccinated students will now be able to return to school with a negative rapid test, as long as they are feeling well enough to go to school. As always, we encourage students to stay home and take care of themselves if they’re not feeling well enough to come to school.
