As a DC public school, Deal does not provide bus transportation for its students. There are numerous alternatives for our students, however, including Metrorail, Metrobus, parent drop-offs, bicycling, skateboarding, and even walking! Metrorail’s Red Line stops at the Tenleytown Station, about a six-minute walk from Deal. The subway connects us with homes across the city. Metrobus also has a number of lines that serve the neighborhood. In addition to regular Metrobus routes that pass through the neighborhood, there are several routes that primarily serve students at Deal. These are the D31, D32, D33, and D34 lines, which provide service to and from Deal from several neighborhoods where walking to Deal is not an option. Parents may drop students off at the door, of course. Many students also choose to get themselves to school under their own power – bicycle racks are located near the front, and students may store their skateboards in their lockers. With the new Kids Ride Free program, students with a DC One Card ride Metrobus and DC Circulator to and from school for free from 5:30 AM to 9:00 AM and from 2:00 PM until 8:00 PM.

Regardless, it was a time to relish the beauty that is spring and to look forward to the action-packed two months that remain in our 14-15 school year. 3rd advisory report cards will be distributed on Friday to all students...[read more]
