Update on school closure 3/27/20

Good afternoon, DC families,

Trusting you are all well and healthy.  These are unique times, and we are so grateful for a God that is steadfast and true.  Praying that you are filled with His peace.

At present, the Riverside County Health Office still maintains the school closure date to April 30th.  Until we hear otherwise, we are functioning on the assumption that we will stay closed until April 30th.

We are proud of our students who are working so diligently to stay on top of their studies.  Please keep setting aside daily time to work on the assignments provided to you by your teachers.  Be sure to meet deadlines set by your teachers, because your timely completion of the work is crucial to moving forward with planned curriculum and content.  Additionally, some of your assigned work requires online collaboration, and your tardiness is a detriment to your classmates.

Our teachers are busily preparing another work packet for you, providing you with curriculum and content to get you through the month of April.  On Sunday, April 5th (2:00 - 4:00 p.m.) and Monday, April 6th (8:00 - 10:00 a.m.), we will have work available for pick up by families.  At the same time, students can drop off the two-weeks of completed work for grading.  The arrangement will be the same, with families pulling up in their cars to drop-off completed work, and pick-up the next batch of assigned work.  The teachers that are utilizing Google Classroom to provide assignments will continue to do so.

Should there be any changes to our plan, or a sooner date of return to school announced, we will be certain to communicate with you.  The administration and faculty of Desert Chapel Christian School is committed to providing our students with quality education, as we adapt to these unusual circumstances.  Please know that you are in our prayers.  May your family be strengthened ... may your health be preserved ... and may your faith in our God be unshakeable.

In His service,

Pastor Frank Marshall, Principal &  Mrs. Ingram, Academic Coordinator/Vice Principal
