COVID-19 UPDATES

CLICK HERE TO SEE OUR JULY 22nd RETURN TO SCHOOL UPDATE

July 10th Update

I pray your summer has been restful and your family is healthy. Last spring during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Calvary led the Savannah community in its response to distance learning. The leadership team has partnered with many experts inside of the education community and more importantly outside the education community to build a task force in order to make an informed decision for next school year. As of today, we plan to begin the year with in-person learning on Thursday, August 13.

With an ever-changing environment, we are preparing to offer multiple educational models with the health and safety of our students and families as our utmost priority. Through extensive research and the generosity of donors, we will be able to provide unique educational opportunities on campus and off-campus for our students. As previously communicated, we will share a more specific plan on July 22 which will review our increased cleaning measures, our new food service provider partnership, and the robust educational options which will begin with on-campus classes on August 13. 

As you return to campus you will notice the many facility improvements we have made and continue to upgrade. While being careful stewards of all God has given us we are striving to provide the best Christian college preparatory experience while remaining proactive in the health and wellness of our students, faculty, and families. 

Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds me that we must continue to trust while we are walking through a different and difficult time together. God remains in control and continues to guide our steps and light our path. I pray you will join the leadership of Calvary in being faithfully focused on leaning on the Lord knowing he will help make our paths straight and guide us as we all navigate through this.

In Him,

Dr. Hunter Chadwick
Head Of School


CALVARY TASK FORCE


We have implemented a Calvary Task Force to increase wellness across all areas of the school and campus to keep the Cavalier Community safe for the future. Our Task Force has been working closely with educators and medical professionals both locally and statewide to develop a plan that meets guidelines in preparation and implementation for our first day and beyond. This planning will provide flexibility and allow us to start school August 13th with opportunities to meet your teachers and orient students before that date.  

Here are a few of the changes being made in preparing for our return to school:  
  • Our cleaning process has been enhanced to hospital grade standards. Our custodial staff uses Hydrogen Peroxide based, certified green products effective in killing most all viruses, and are safe for our children and staff. They have implemented a thorough and consistent cleaning schedule; which includes regular cleaning of high contact areas throughout the day and thorough disinfecting of all major surfaces of every used space in nightly cleanings. 
  • Reorganization of functional areas across campus to maximize the over 350,000 square feet of available space ensuring the ability to safely social distance while focusing on the learning process. One great result will be the increased presence of our nurses to serve and treat your children and our staff.  
  • Enhancing the distance learning program by adding additional tools to provide more opportunities for learning through multiple mediums. The leadership and administration team will be adjusting the attendance policy to encourage continued learning even when a student or staff member falls within the guidelines of the CDC requirements to stay home or quarantine. Details of these policies will be outlined in our next communications.  

Those are the knowns; and, as we have discovered, there are numerous unknowns revealed every day. Our goal is to provide a meaningful learning experience for all students while taking into consideration the health and wellness of each of our Calvary families. We will continue to pursue expert advice from state and local officials, the CDC, other private schools locally and regionally, the CDS Task Force, the Georgia Department of Education, and the Department of Health to keep our students, staff, and their families safe.
