Dear Christian Jr/Sr High Parents,
Welcome Back! We’re excited to start the school year and welcome you and your students to our CHS/CJHS Community. Our teachers have been back on campus this week, setting up their online and regular classrooms, and are excited for the start of school on Wednesday, August 19th, You’ll see details below on what the first week of school looks like. For the next two weeks in addition to academics, we will focus on community and relationship building with students and teachers. We know that as we look forward, this foundation in our community will be important when we do come back on campus. Our staff has been working this week on building on the Distance Learning Program we implemented in the spring, with some improvements including more consistency in workload and assignments across departments and increased support and individualization for your students.
Attached you will see some important information about next week:
Book pick up will take place Monday and Tuesday, August 17 and 18th. Please plan to arrive at the time listed on the attached schedule (the reverse side of the News and Notes document). If this time does not work for you, please email Rose.firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an alternate time. You have been assigned times to avoid large groups. Please plan to wear a mask and wait outside the library when you arrive.
Junior High Virtual Welcome will be held on Monday, August 17th. An email will be sent to students and parents on Monday with a link. Students will learn the basics tricks and tips to have a successful start online at CJHS.
High School Mobile Learning Orientation on Tuesday, August 18th. An email will be sent to parents and students on Tuesday with the link. High School students will be welcomed and introduced to the basics of online learning at CHS.
First Day of classes will be on Wednesday, August 19th at 7:40 AM online. We will follow the attached 8-Bell schedule so please print it out to support your student in attending the live online classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Your student will need to be dressed for school, have access to a device with internet access, and a desk or other quiet area set aside for school hours. Teachers will be online with your students for synchronous learning for at least 30 minutes of each class. (If your student needs a device or internet access please contact email@example.com).
Patriot Connect will be held on Thursday, August 20th from 9:00-11:00 AM online (Grades 7-12). The purpose of this event is to provide an opportunity for students to connect with our staff and other students with similar interests. Students will receive information on how to attend this event in their Bible classes on the first day of school. This does not replace our annual Patriot Games, which will be scheduled when we return to campus.
As we partner together in this rapidly changing situation, you can count on regular communication and updates. I know how important it is to you to have the information you need to support your student. Thank you for your patience and support as we walk through this time together in our CHS/CJHS community, and trust in Christ’s timing for our school re-opening. See you at book pick up!
