Covid-19 Response

2020-2021 School Year Plans

The health of our students, teachers, staff, and families is at the forefront of our planning. Our 2020-21 School Year Task Force, in conjunction with representatives from the Institute for Environmental Assessment (IEA) and local medical professionals, are regularly meeting to incorporate plans and guidelines for this school year. We are focused on delivering the quality, faith-filled education our students need in the best and safest manner possible as we prepare for in-person classes beginning on August 31. We will continue to plan for multiple scenarios in this rapidly changing environment and quickly adapt our instructional method at any point, if needed.
