We are excited and ready to launch a new school year! Before we share about this upcoming school year, first, let’s thank Jesus for what He did in 2020-2021. Also, thank you parents for partnering with us in accomplishing our mission of an in person Christ-like educational experience. It truly took a community approach! God was faithful and true. He answered prayers and provided guidance. He was our comforter and strength in times of need. He was and is still present. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow (Hebrews 13:8). He will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). His promises are yes and amen (2 Corinthians 1:20).
Moving forward, as a school community we are trusting in the Lord for His guidance, protection, and peace. As a staff, we are flexing our muscles of versatility and creativity to ensure that our students have an excellent educational experience. As a Wellness Team, we are working diligently to keep our community safe. We know our families are committed to Christian education and partnering with us to protect our RCS community.
Therefore, Rejoice is taking a balanced approach to the 2021-2022 school year. Using the practical knowledge gained from last year’s experiences, we are optimistic that we will be able to again have a successful school year.
Rejoice Christian School will be opening at BLUE on our Wellness Index. This means that our students’ educational experience will be running about 95% of that of a pre-C19 normal year. We will adjust our Wellness Index, and thus our responses, accordingly with respect to the wellness climate in our school and in our local community. The details of our 2021-2022 protocols are briefly shared below.
We are using two tools to clearly communicate and define the details of our response to any changes in the wellness climate. Because the current situation is both unpredictable and dynamic, we have tried to carefully craft a system that allows us to respond without causing major shifts in our educational mission and school landscape.
