DC Law now requires all students aged 12 and older to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to stay in school. Submit a copy or photo of your student’s COVID-19 vaccination card to COVID-19 Operations Coordinator, Evelyn Marquez (emarquez@elhaynes.org).

Our team’s dedication makes our work possible.

From the Board of Trustees, who makes critical decisions pertaining to management, facilities, finance, and fundraising to our senior staff, who translates our mission into practice and guides the strategic direction of the school, to our campus-based and cross-campus staff, who are the ones fully realizing our mission in our school buildings and in classrooms with students every day, our team ensures that every student will be prepared to thrive in college, career, and life.
