Faith Christian School is thrilled to announce WE ARE BACK! FCS will be reopening every day with on-campus learning beginning on August 31, 2020.
This means that every FCS student will be able to participate in learning on campus in a typical classroom setting: North and South campuses, every student, every day! This Back to School Road Map will involve additional health and safety measures that meet or exceed state requirements for things like entering the building, use of shared/common spaces, hallways, and restrooms. The vast majority of the in-class student experience in August, 2020 will look very similar- and in some cases identical- to what they experienced in prior school years. Our Back to School Road Map is a living document and will be subject to renewal and change as state and CDC requirements are updated or redefined.
This decision involved a great deal of planning and strategy from school administration. Through the participation in daily meetings, much research, and professional counsel, we were able to determine the best and safest course of action for our students, faculty, and staff following Pennsylvania Department of Education and CDC safe school COVID-19 guidelines. This planning and strategy continues to occupy the vast majority of our leadership’s time and efforts on a daily basis. Please continue to be in prayer for our leadership team as they make decisions that will impact every member of the FCS family over the course of the 2020-2021 school year.
We are planning for additional contingencies in the event that an active coronavirus case is diagnosed in an FCS community member. These situations are being planned to have safe, healthy, and least restrictive environments for all involved.
We have much more to communicate in the days ahead. There are still many details for us to work through and communicate to our parents and students. Importantly, we acknowledge that these plans may be impacted by decisions made by state and municipal authorities with jurisdiction over our school.
Thank you for your time, support, and continued partnership in this most important of all missions!
In His Service,
Mrs. Leeann Long
FCS Head of School
