Faith Christian School
August 21, 2020

Faith Family, 
Thanks for your cooperation in getting school started. We appreciate the students good participation in developing a routine. We want to help ensure the safety of all of our students.
Don't forget to add money to lunch accounts online, as we strive to handle less money at this time. 
Also, we have a limited supply of face masks that may be purchased for $3 each in our school office. 
Please let us know how we can assist you further (336-824-4156). Thanks again for helping make a smooth start to an unusual school year. 

Looking Unto Jesus,
Mr. Todd Daniel, FCS Administrator 

How Can You Help Us at Dropoff and Pickup?

-In the mornings, please ask your child or children to be ready to get out of the car quickly so that we keep the dropoff lines moving well. 
-Please place your name card in the front window for picking up your child or children. This helps us keep things moving more quickly. 
-Those who are picking up elementary students only, please come at 2:30 pm. Those who are picking up both elementary and ms/hs students, please wait and come at 2:45 pm.

Yellow Eagle School

FCS started school on Yellow Eagle School.

– No face covering for preschool, K5 and 1st; 2nd and 3rd are encouraged to wear a face covering and instructed in wearing them; 4th through 12th will be required to have a face covering. 

The rule wis “when you are up, the face covering is up; when you are down, the face covering may be down.” So, when the student is at his/her desk in class and at meal times, the mask may be down.  When the student is in common areas and moving around the room/campus, the mask will have to be up.

Our desire is to stay at school. If the face covering helps allow this goal, it is a step that we will take together. The use of face coverings does allow more normal activities at school such as chapel, etc. Without the use of a face covering, school days require more isolated activities. It does also add another layer of protection to what we are doing.  FCS will be providing each student with a neck gaiter with the school logo. The neck gaiter may be pulled up and down easily.  Whatever a student wears, we encourage that it only be worn one day and put in with the dirty clothes for that day.  We ask that face coverings have acceptable logos and slogans.  Please let us consider one another and pray together that Covid-19 will soon be gone. Compliance will be expected with whatever level we are on.  

Sports Questions

What about sports?  Varsity soccer and volleyball practices for high school students are after school each day (excluding Wednesdays) until games begin.  Soccer and volleyball coaches will advise the players of practice days.  

According to the NCCSA, our athletic association, games may begin on September 8 because we are in Phase 2 of our state's restrictions. As far as practices, all coaches and students must be screened for signs and symptoms and the results recorded prior to each workout. With a temperature of 100.4, a person will be isolated. A person must be fever, symptom and medicine free for at least 24 hours. Indoor practices are limited to 20 people at a time, and 40 people only may gather for outdoor practices. Locker rooms may be used with 6 ft. between individuals. Workouts should be in pods of 5-10 and the same people always working out together. Hand sanitizer must be used often. Students should wash clothes each evening, and they may not share any personal items or clothing. All equipment must be cleaned intermittently during practices. Athletes must practice good hygiene, such as the use of soap/water and hand sanitizer, avoidance of touching face, sneezing or coughing into a tissue or in elbow. Those not feeling well should stay at home. Face coverings are best when being transported to places. Further guidelines will be given from the NCCSA concerning games. 

Also, game schedules will be available the beginning of September.

The Wilds Trip

Has FCS decided on the annual Wilds trip?  We will make a decision on Friday, August 31. There are two possibilities in consideration. If we are able to go on the original planned dates, September 8-11, Grades 10-12 only will be going, and Grades 7-9 only will go to The Wilds Camp on November 10-13.  The other possibility is that Grades 10-12  would go November 10-13, and Grades 7-9 would go in spring 2021. Since The Wilds trip is an important part of what we do at FCS, we will do our best to make one of the scenarios work based upon the conditions at the time.

Afterschool Care

After we are able to get the school year going, we will assess the conditions and possibilites on Friday, September 4, and then make a decision if afterschool care can be provided. 

Water Fountain

Each student should bring his/her own water bottle. Our water fountains are only available for water bottle filling.

Pre-pay Lunch Accounts

This year the school will are using the FACTS SIS Lunch System.  It is similar to our past systems.  In your Family Portal, under the "Financial" tab, you will see that you have a PRE-PAY account.  We are handling as little money as possible. At any time you may add money directly from your bank account or credit card to your PRE-PAY Lunch Account.  You have two options for ordering lunch:  1)  You may order through the Family Portal Lunch calendar; or 2) in the morning at homeroom.  The lunch orders will be deducted from your PRE-PAY Account.  Your PRE-PAY account is ready at this time to begin receiving payments.
