CHA Announces School Closure and Remote Learning Plan
CHA’s leadership team assembled this morning to address a response to growing COVID-19 concerns and formulated a closure and remote learning plan effective Monday, March 16th.
“Within our school community, we know that many of our students have direct and daily contact with family members in vulnerable segments of our population including older adults (60+) and individuals with underlying health problems. As Christians, it is important for us to act out of love and responsibility for each other, our neighbor and the larger community,” said Mr. Quist, Head of School
CHA’s primary goals at this time are to increase social distancing within the school community and continue educating their students through a brief two-week period of Remote Learning ahead of their scheduled Easter Break.
CHA has initiated the following plan for Remote Learning through Monday, April 13th:
Teacher Workdays (No School): Monday, March 16th - Friday, March 20th -- our faculty and staff will use these days to prepare for a two-week period of Remote Learning
Resources Pickup: Friday, March 20th from 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. -- families may visit the school during this designated time to pick up the resources, books, and materials teachers have assembled for their students to complete the two-week Remote Learning period
Remote Learning Period: Monday, March 23rd - Friday, April 3rd
Easter Break (No School): Monday, April 6th - Monday, April 13th
ALL EVENTS will be canceled through Friday, April 3rd and rescheduled as possible throughout the remainder of the year
In a recent letter to the school community, Mr. Quist stated, “Scripture commands us repeatedly, “Do not be afraid.” At the same time, we are encouraged to “understand the times and know what to do”. We choose not to react out of fear or hysteria but based on a realistic recognition that this situation requires us to protect others, particularly those in our community who are most vulnerable and to aid in efforts to “flatten the curve” to slow the spread of the virus so our healthcare system is not overloaded beyond capacity.”
CHA recognizes that this is a developing situation and will continue to monitor, evaluate, and adjust plans accordingly in the days ahead.
