With the dedicated work of so many people over the course of the past few weeks, I am excited to announce to our Warrior Family that we have created a viable reopening plan to begin the 2020-2021 school year. We kept two main goals in mind while our committee was crafting a plan that would best meet the needs of all our students and families. First, we wanted to make sure that we provide the safest environment possible for all our students and staff. Safety is a top priority for opening up, and we will have many practical safety and security measures in place as we start the new school year. The second goal was to provide a learning environment that is as close to “normal” as possible for our students and staff. We have received so much feedback from parents desiring to have their children return to school so they can get back to more normal routines and procedures. While HCS will focus on creating a safe learning environment, we believe that we can still create a nurturing and high-quality Christian learning environment that fosters relationships and supports teaching the whole child. This challenging journey reminds me of Matthew 21:22 which says that whatever we ask in prayer, we will receive it, if we have faith. It is through faith and so many prayers that I believe God has great plans for Houma Christian School this year. We appreciate all the love and support we have received during the pandemic. Blessings!
As we release the 2020 Reopening Plan, we want to assure everyone that Houma Christian School will be following the guidelines set forth by the Governor’s Phase Plan for Reopening, Department of Education Strong Start Plan, and the President’s Corona Virus Task Force. While every school and district may have unique caveats to their reopening plans, all schools will have very similar guidelines and best practices in place. The HCS Reopening Plan will be a fluid one which means it may be adjusted and modified as needed based on what phase the state of Louisiana is currently implementing. We will offer two options for our students. Students in grades 2nd – 12th will be able to choose either traditional in-person learning or opt to do distance learning from home. Below, we will detail the reopening guidelines by grade level and phases.
