Crown Point Christian Families,
Crown Point began the 2020-21 school year by publishing a back-to-school plan. Throughout the 2020-21 school year the school followed state and local mandates and did not make significant changes to the plan that was communicated to families in August. We thank God for his faithful provisions and grace as the school was able to remain face-to-face the entire school year while navigating the challenges of a global pandemic.
The state health department released its guidance for the 2021-22 school year. Along with that guidance, the state removed statewide mandates and left mitigation decisions at the local school level. Taking current virus data into account, Crown Point Christian School is planning to open the 2021-22 school year no longer mandating masks or requiring social distancing. Daily health screenings conducted by the parents will remain the primary precaution. The school will not, however, require written documentation of the health screenings. In addition to health screenings, the school will continue with increased cleaning protocols and will emphasize proper hygiene such as hand washing. In the event of a significant change in data or new mandates from health officials, the administration will provide updated information as it becomes necessary. Finally, the administration plans to share more information regarding quarantines and steps the school will take to support families with children in exposure quarantine for the 2021-22 school year in early August.
Finally, as we return to more typical community life, we are happy to report that group gatherings, chapels, and athletic competitions will resume at full capacity and attendance will not be limited. However, please note that when competing against other schools, Crown Point Christian will adhere to the rules of the team it is visiting.
Thank you to families, students, and staff as we made several adjustments to make in-person learning a reality this past school year. Your humility, patience, and resilience, no matter the circumstances, have been so appreciated by the board and staff of CPCS. We again thank God God for his sustaining grace through this challenging season and look forward to a more typical 2021-22 school year.
