Health & Safety

Community is the heart of Capitol Hill Day School. We are thrilled to welcome prospective parents and guardians onto campus; however, the School's top priority is to protect the health and safety of our community. Should health recommendations change, we are ready to adapt and adjust as needed. Please note: in the interest of our youngest community members who are not yet eligible for vaccination, we can only offer in-person experiences for vaccinated individuals. We are happy to customize a virtual experience in lieu of coming to campus. Thank you for your understanding!
