Cherry Hills Christian School is planning and preparing for a wonderful 2020-21 academic year! We have developed models for schooling during times of communicable illness outbreak. At this time, it is our intent and expectation to return to campus in August with in-person learning in a traditional setting with social distancing protocols and enhanced hygiene and sanitation practices in place. We also are confident our remote learning program, CHC Connect, will be a stabilizing, effective and strengthening force for our school community.
Execution of our plans will be informed by the Centers for Disease Control, state licensing requirements and state and local officials’ orders. We also will administer our plans with a mindset of love over fear and potential kingdom impact over negative operational impact.
We invite current and prospective families with questions to contact us at email@example.com
This is a brief overview of the four models of schooling CHC has planned and prepared to offer during times of severe illness outbreak.
Traditional school setting
Cherry Hills Christian School students engage in learning in person and with increased safety and health protocols in place. School officials will continue to monitor closely the effectiveness of prevention efforts and make adjustments as necessary. CHC Connect will remain available for all students.
Illness prevention techniques will include regular communications with parents and Faculty and Staff. Disinfection and sanitation will remain a top priority for CHC. Personal protective equipment may be worn.
Traditional setting with social distancing
Students will continue to learn in our Traditional Setting and with full implementaiton of our social-distancing protocols. These protocols will include limits on group meeting sizes, such as during recess and lunch; changes in student drop-off and pickup; changes in classroom desk configuration; cohort groups of students; no use of lockers; and limits on campus access to parents, volunteers and visitors. We will also implement a variety of health and safety measures including health screenings, increased hand washing and sanitizing protocols and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting capabilities.
Remote learning with optional, on-site enrichment days
During times of public health-related restrictions, it is likely that only a portion of CHC students will be permitted to enter the campus. To help our students engage in their school community and advance in their studies, Cherry Hills Christian School will provide optional On-Site Enrichment Days that follow recommended guidelines for small-group gatherings.
Remote learning and CHC-designed activities for engagement from home
Our campus will close until in-person instruction is permitted. All learning for students in Kindergarten through Grade 8 will be conducted through school-issued iPads and our CHC Connect program. Students and their families also will be invited to connect with us through fun, online events and activities.
