Meadowview Christian School to start classes August 14

Meadowview Christian School will open the school year on campus Aug. 14.

MCS headmaster and football coach Bob Taylor said unless a mandate comes from Gov. Kay Ivey, classes will start on the second Friday of August. MCS sent letters to the students and their parents last week.

“MCS feels the best course of action is for on-campus in person learning,” Taylor said. “MCS will do everything possible to protect the health and safety of our students and families.”

Taylor said Social Distancing guidelines will be followed.

 “We will make every effort to keep students in small groups when possible,” Taylor said.

All MCS students, faculty and staff will have their temperature taken every morning before entering the building. If a person has a temperature that is above 100 or higher, they will not be able to enter the building. Parents are asked to monitor their children at home. If a student shows any symptoms, they should remain at home.

Masks are required for anyone who enters a building at MCS. Students must have a mask before school starts.  MCS will unveil details about wearing masks during open house and the first day of school. MCS will also discuss new policies and procedures.

If school needs to close again, Taylor said MCS has a plan in place for the students. The plans will be sent via email to each parent and student if and when that time comes. The plans will work according to the situation. MCS will work with each student if they are unable to attend classes.

Taylor also said that any student, faculty or staff member tests positive for the COVID 19 virus will have to meet the 14-day quarantine requirement and three days without symptoms before they can return to school.

Fall sports will be determined at a later date by the AISA. In the fall, MCS plays football and volleyball and has a cheerleading squad.
