News & Information

Friendship Family,

The values of democracy we know and cherish will not be deterred by lawlessness and chaos. While we are deeply saddened with the current events taking place at the Capitol building, we wholeheartedly believe that democracy will prevail.

To ensure the safety of our school community, all Friendship Public Charter School buildings are now closed so that staff, students and families can adhere to Mayor Bowser’s 6 p.m. curfew and our buildings will remain closed tomorrow, Thursday, January 7, 2021. The COVID-19 testing program scheduled for the remainder of the week is postponed until further notice.

As always, your health, safety and well-being is our top priority.  For updates, visit and our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages. You may also contact the hotline or call 202.281.1777.
