We are excited to announce that Roots Public Charter School is now participating in My School DC, the common application for nearly all DC-based public schools that opens on December 12, 2016. Families interested in joining the Roots PCS community are invited to attend the Open House that will take place between January and February.
New student applications for the upcoming year will be accepted through www.myschooldc.org. When selecting a school, you will select Roots Public Charter School. Once your application has been submitted and you receive notification that your child has been accepted, the following documents must be submitted to the school:
Students are not enrolled in the school until all supporting documents have been received.
Parents must attend the Parent Workshop in August to finalize student’s space for the Fall.
For more details, please visit My School DC.
The School year will be 180+ days beginning in September and ending in June, with the same federal holidays and snow days as the D.C. Public School system. Student hours are from:
Pre-Primary - 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Primary - 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
We participate in the National School Lunch Program.
