Today we received the news from Governor Newsom that Los Angeles County schools will not be able to hold in-person classes until the County is off of the state’s COVID-19 watchlist for at least 14 days. There are only a few counties in California that are able to currently reopen, but with strict protocols & guidelines.
Our hearts go out to all of you as we will once again need to prepare for a fully on-line school. God has blessed us with the ability to do so successfully, and we are confident that we can provide rigorous classes and the educational support that your students need. Classes will be meeting on Zoom at the regular scheduled time based on our bell schedule. Teachers will be in their new classrooms meeting with students on Zoom and presenting lessons and holding discussions. The office will be open daily from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm and students are required to attend every online class session and chapel.
We also want you to know that our administration & staff have been working hard to prepare the school to meet all the COVID-19 protocols of the state that are necessary for our eventual re-opening. Just a year ago we were at the LA Galaxy Soccer Center making do with our limited classrooms & office space. Only God could have orchestrated the events of this past year, bringing us to our new location at just the right time.
Here are some of the ways that God has provided for us at our new location to make our eventual reopening possible:
Classrooms large enough to accommodate up to 24/25 students, with 6 feet social distancing.
A large main office & individual office spaces for our administration & staff to be able to do business safely.
A campus with an outdoor eating area & plenty of outdoor space for students to socially distance themselves when spending time with one another.
Technology in every classroom for students who need to continue to stay at home that will allow students to join classrooms via Zoom when necessary.
As we wait for the day when our students can once again step foot safely onto our campus, know that our teachers and staff will do everything that we can to support you as our Ambassador family.
