The health and well-being of our students and employees are our top priority and we are vigilant in monitoring and responding to the latest guidelines presented from the Center for Disease Control, Georgia Department of Public Health, Georgia Department of Education, and the Governor’s executive orders regarding school gatherings and safety. Additionally, we consider our local county school districts’ implementation plans and our local independent schools’ implementation plans and are in regular sessions provided by our school accreditors, the National Associate of Independent Schools, the Southern Association of Independent Schools as well as the Association of Christian Schools International where we learn and share about the best practices surrounding re-opening for fall. All of these organizations provide comprehensive and helpful guidelines for how to conduct learning in a safe environment.
Additionally, the American Academy of Pediatrics released their guidelines stating they “strongly advocate that all policy considerations for the coming year should start with a goal of having students physically present in schools.”
Landmark Christian School is confident in the on-campus school reopening plan for Fall 20-21 and we are offering additional personalized distance learning options for parents who choose distance learning or a hybrid option. We will begin a staggered opening on August 12 and all classes will be in session on August 17. Our fall re-opening plan highlights the policies and guidelines that we are currently following.
What does it all look like when my child returns to school?
There are two answers to this question. First, to help parents and students prepare for the upcoming school year we will release videos that illustrate what the day-to-day operations will look like for students when they return. How will drop-off look? How will transitioning to the hallways look? How will lunchtime look? How does classroom learning look? While our reopening plan addresses these, we will distribute content that addresses these topics in video format prepared for our families so that you will feel confident and clear on our reopening plan.
The second answer to that question is, for families who for any reason do not want their child to return to school for five-day a week learning, Landmark is offering individualized plans for distance learning that include various elements of synchronous and asynchronous instruction, including screencasting, live streaming, recorded lectures and instructional videos, digital text resources, online learning tools, and assignments. Since each family’s needs are different, we will work directly with each family to build an individualized learning plan for each student on a case by case basis within the framework of support that we are able to offer.
