Greetings, North Hills Christian families,
As we navigate a school year with many unknowns due to COVID-19, we know there are questions about cases in classrooms, protocols, and questions about what to expect moving forward.
If your student begins to exhibit a combination of COVID-19 symptoms during school, school staff will contact you to pick up your child. Your child will be moved into a room specifically designed for quarantine, and it will be sanitized immediately after the student has been picked up.
If a teacher or student is confirmed positive, the affected classroom(s) will be required to quarantine for 14 days and students/teachers will be able to return on the 15th day. We will work directly with the Rowan County Health Department and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services to determine quarantine requirements. The impacted classroom(s) will be deep cleaned and sanitized before students/teachers return.
Lower school students in JK-2nd grades will utilize Zoom for live instruction and will submit assignments via email to their classroom teacher. Work packets will be in your child’s book bag and will be completed based upon teacher instruction. Students in 3rd-5th grades will utilize Zoom for live instruction and Google Classroom for assignments. Please refer to information from your classroom teacher via email and FACTS regarding class specific instructions.
Middle and high school students will continue to utilize Google Classroom for their coursework and Zoom to attend live instruction on their regular schedule.
If a classroom is required to quarantine, your respective principal will send additional details regarding Zoom, Google Classroom, date to return, etc.
Because of our obligation to protect the privacy of students and employees as required by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) laws, the school cannot release specific information about a confirmed case. Nikki Eagle and/or the health department will contact you if you have been directly impacted.
If you have not returned your signed Waiver of Liability form, please do so as soon as possible. Mrs. Eagle will be reaching out soon to the families who do not have signed waivers on file.
We continue to work with the health department frequently to make sure we have the proper guidelines and protocols in place. Our number one priority is the health and safety of everyone at North Hills Christian School, so we are reminding all staff and students to wear masks, socially distance, and wash hands frequently. Please do your part to make our spaces safe. If you have questions, email Nikki Eagle, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Continue to pray with us throughout the year for the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. We know that God is doing big things on campus!
