CCS Returns During COVID-19 Pandemic

By Gary Stonesifer

(CLARKSVILLE, TN) - The energy was high this morning as Clarksville Christian School began the 2020-21 school year. Today marks the first day students, faculty and staff have been back on campus together since the COVID-19 pandemic started this past spring. Pre-K through 12th grade students were present on campus to begin the new year.

Over this past Summer, CCS established a COVID-19 Rapid Response Team made up of parents who are professionals and specialists in the healthcare field as well as health and safety. School President, Dr. Brad Moser, remarked “we are incredibly grateful for the numerous hours and tremendous efforts this group has spent working with our leadership team to help ensure that we were ready to start back to school in person and on campus.” “In addition to helping us start the school year,” Moser added, “our COVID-19 Rapid Response Team will provide guidance and consult throughout the year so we are prepared to navigate as circumstances continue to develop.”

In their guide, A Safe Return To Campus, CCS provided information to parents, students, and staff to make sure safety protocols and procedures were clear from the start. The plan is based on information from the American Academy of Pediatrics, The Montgomery County Department of Health, and other agencies as well. CCS Parent, Jessica Stonesifer is cautiously optimistic, “I’m confident CCS has the best possible plan in place that puts our children's safety first. My husband and I appreciate the common sense approach combined with guidance from our local health organizations.” Since this is a team effort both our faculty and staff look forward to providing our students the best quality education they deserve throughout the school year.
