The Redding Christian School Board and Administration met this morning to pray and discuss our response to the public health emergency created by the COVID-19 disease. We are now at a point where the balance has shifted and the appropriate path is to close school. We are taking this step to keep our community safe. Effective Tuesday, March 17, we will close Redding Christian School for two weeks while we evaluate the appropriate path forward. This includes all classroom and school sponsored activities and athletics. While our school facilities will be closed, we are making plans for students to continue to learn during this time.
Teachers will come to school on Tuesday to begin planning and preparations to determine best course of action for the delivery of content. Our work will be done with appropriate levels of distancing so that we too can remain healthy. It will take us a couple days to work through sufficient details. We want to thank all our staff who are working tirelessly to help our students and planning for them to remain connected to the school community.
In the mean time we encourage all families to continue to pray for those already impacted directly by the virus, plan how your family needs to adjust, and find rest. Psalm 23:3 says, “He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.”
We want to take this time to thank you for your patience and trust as we work together to maintain some sense of normalcy in these unique times. You have our commitment that we will do all we can to help you and your children stay safe and remain successful over the next weeks.
The School Board will be meeting weekly, or more frequently if necessary, to evaluate current information. We will continue to do our best to keep you informed with emails from administration and from your students’ teachers; daily if necessary, since facts and circumstances continue to change.
We have been blessed by your words of encouragement and prayers for wisdom in making these difficult decisions.
The School Office will remain open to schedule appointments for prospective families for the 2020-21 school year. Email or call the office to set up an appointment email@example.com
The choice you make about the education of your child is a major influence in their life and the development of their worldview. You know your child’s needs best, so asking questions is important. RCS Administrators schedule appointments with parents and students in order to make sure you have all the answers you need to make your decision.
Learning about a school may take more than one visit. We know this is one of the most important decisions you will make concerning your child’s future, so we want you to take all the time you need.
