Trinity will be open for school in the fall with face-to-face instruction! Principal Julian Petzold has been following the data regarding Covid-19 almost daily since March. The data reveals some very encouraging information about the safety and well-being of those under the age of 17.
Furthermore, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has provided a tool for schools to use to determine if they can re-open, and Trinity isready to meet every one of the recommendations they have put in place to keep school a safe place for children and staff. Should things change, Trinity is ready to adapt as necessary, but all next year's planning has been done with the anticipation of face-to-face instruction. We are looking forward to it!
A final plan for opening school will be made later in the summer using the most current data. Right now, a committee appointed by the governor, is working on developing guidelines for opening schools in the fall. However, we don’t know when those guidelines will be available. As a school community, Trinity will work with parents, staff, and students to provide the best education in a safe manner. As of today, Mr. Petzold hasn’t seen anything that would prevent us from being here in school again.
Yes, things may be a bit different, but so is the world we live in today. Considering that we adapted to distance learning in just two days back in March, we certainly are an adaptable group. We will adapt and make changes as necessary to provide for the health and safety of our students, parents, and staff. As we adapt together, the strength of our relationships in Christ will become even stronger as we work “as though working for the Lord.” (Colossians 3:23)
Please share this news with your friends. Many people feel uncertain about school in the fall, and they might really enjoy some certainty for their children. Tell them about Trinity and have them call the school office or e-mail to find out more. Finally, a detailed plan for opening school will be coming later in the summer.
