    If you have been identified as being medically vulnerable by the CDC and Department of Health, here is a document to assist you with requesting accommodations under the ADA. A request for accommodation can begin a dialogue to find ways to best meet the needs of the District and vulnerable individuals' needs. 
    It could be better to request accommodations sooner than later. 
    Here is a sample document that may help you request accommodations: Vulnerable Population Accommodation-COVID

ESP Help Keep our Schools Safe
