A Note from the Administrator

As we come to the end of our first week out of school, I am reminded where we started the year with our Faculty and Staff.  In August, as we planned for the arrival of the students, I challenged our Faculty and Staff on the vision of Tabernacle Christian School.  Seeing as how 2020 was just around the corner at the time, it seemed a most appropriate topic.  Fast forward into 2020, and vision seems to be the most elusive thing.

Coronavirus Statement

We have received a few inquiries recently as to our response to the coronavirus. First, we would like to offer our prayers for all those who have been affected by the coronavirus. Please know we are doing everything in our power to maintain safe conditions for all Tabernacle families and staff.

We are constantly monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the local health department for guidance.  We are also tracking updates from the Department of State for any travel advisories that would affect our school, field trips, and athletic events.

Thankfully, we currently have no local outbreak of the coronavirus, so we will continue with school and activities as normal.  We will, however, put into place preventative measure to help us combat a potential outbreak.  We will

  • Provide time for all students to wash their hands multiple times throughout the day.
  • More routine cleaning of specific areas in the classroom, including desktops, doorknobs, tables, etc. and prioritizing areas such as bathrooms and common areas.
  • Advise students to refrain from touching their face, nose, or mouth and to cough or sneeze into their elbow or a tissue.
  • Keep the facilities stocked with soap, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and tissues.

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, please strictly adhere to our current policies of remaining at home.  If any student experiences any symptoms at school, that individual will be quarantined in an area and monitored until a family member or emergency contact can arrive.  They will be asked to leave the school immediately and contact their health care provider.

In the event that a health care provider quarantines an individual after being at school, we will

  • Notify staff and parents of all students.
  • Cancel all school events until further notice
  • Perform extensive cleaning of the school

Depending on the specific circumstances, we will determine when it is safe to return to school.  Upon returning to school, quarantined individuals must present a health release statement from their health care provider.

If a student is sent home for symptoms of the coronavirus, the absence will be excused.  A student will also be excused while quarantined.  Otherwise, attendance will be as normal each day.

Maintaining a schedule of instruction without a break is important for the learning and growth of students.  We will prepare supplemental instructional materials for students in the event of a prolonged school closure to ensure students are prepared to resume class upon return.

As of now, we will continue school as normal, with attendance taken as normal.  All in-state field trips and athletic events will continue as planned.  The situation will be continued to be monitored carefully and will be updated as needed.
