Thank you for choosing to partner with Conway Christian during this unprecedented time. We are committed to working with you to keep your child safe while offering our five day a week, on campus college preparatory instruction from a biblical worldview. The following is Conway Christian’s current COVID-19 plan. It is subject to change at any time based on new information and best practices available to the school.
Conway Christian is committed to offering on-campus learning, five days a week, for the entirety of the school year with exceptions being determined by the school president. Our ability to transition to AMI is a click away for circumstances that warrant the strategy. The school will communicate when AMI times are available or not available, either specific to a student or across the board.
If AMI is needed, the process has been refined to be more personalized. Specific to the Lower School: Teachers will be meeting with small groups of students (3-4) multiple times per week to teach lessons and answer questions. If one on one instruction is needed teachers will do their very best to accommodate. While we might still offer large group zoom meetings it will be for peer interaction and not be a focus of our plan. Instead, we are committed to offering the most individualized AMI possible to meet the needs of our students and to assist our parents.
When students are receiving AMI instruction they will not be allowed to take part in on campus activities, including athletic and art competitions.
Students will not be required to wear a face covering inside the classrooms, during activities, recess or lunch while socially distanced. However, we will ask all Kindergarten - 4th grade students to wear a face covering when not socially distanced in the classroom, during activities (not PE) or in the hallways. This will be determined by teachers in coordination with school administration. We recommend parents provide students with one face covering to keep at school and one to wear to and from campus.
Preschool and Extended Care:
Face Coverings: Students in 5th/6th grade will be required to wear face coverings when in close contact with one another. This includes the classroom while excluding lunch, recess, other physical activities, common areas and outdoor spaces where social distancing is attainable.
All classes have been modified to accommodate the fewest number of students to aid in social distancing while working at their desks. Passing periods will be adjusted to decrease the amount of traffic in the hallways. During passing periods students should go immediately to their next class.
Students (7th-12th) will be required to wear a face covering. This includes the classroom while excluding lunch, athletics and other times when social distancing is acceptable.
All students will be required to use backpacks instead of lockers to prevent congregation. (some classes have e-books that can help decrease the carrying load for students).
If a student needs to use the bathroom we will ask for it to be done during class time to better control congregating in the bathrooms, unless it is an emergency.
Drop off will begin at 7:30 until 7:45 each morning at the commons door. All students who arrive between 7:30-7:45 will remain in the commons, socially distanced, with a face covering on until dismissed at 7:45. Beginning at 7:45 drop off will only be allowed at the main entrance unless you are a car driver then you may enter through the commons. Students will be required to go straight to their assigned classrooms beginning at 7:45. The tardy bell will ring at 8:00 promptly. Students must wear face coverings when entering the building until inside their assigned class. Face coverings and social distancing will be monitored by faculty/staff on duty.
Pick up will begin at 3:25 for the upper school. Student drivers who do not have after school responsibilities must leave the building without lingering, face coverings on and immediately leave campus without loitering. Students who are waiting for a ride must wear a face covering and be outside, unless during inclement weather then students will wait indoors. Car drivers may be dismissed a couple minutes early if deemed necessary by principal.
Students will be required to bring their own water bottle. Automatic, touchless water bottle filling stations have been installed throughout the campus. No open cups of liquid will be allowed.
We will offer food service for our families catered by approved food vendors/restaurants. No food will be prepared on campus. Students will rotate from eating in classrooms and the lunchroom based on a daily schedule per grade. Students are encouraged to participate in our lunch program or bring their own lunch. However, parents may drop off lunch from a restaurant. Lunch drop off will be in the foyers of each building. Parents will be required to wear a mask, drop off the lunch with the name of the student already on the bag/container, then immediately exit the building. No entrance to the main buildings will be permitted while dropping off lunches.
