Tillery Christian Academy has worked closely with health officials from the Stanly County Health Department and, following NC and CDC guidelines for reopening, has developed our covid19 health and safety plan. The plan can be accessed by clicking the link above. Our students will return to school for face-to-face instructions on August 17, 2020, 8:00 – 2:45 with the covid19 plan in place. Any family who feels uncomfortable in returning face-to-face may opt for 100% remote learning using Zoom and Google classsroom; those families must notify the school as soon by email or phone call (firstname.lastname@example.org, 704-680-7944) as possible so that plans can be made to accomodate their delivery choice. While masks are not required to be worn all day, students should arrive at school masked and in time for the arrival temperature check and questionaire to be completed before instruction can take place. Masks or face shields will be used when students are unable to maintain the required social distance measures. We understand that covid19 safety requires sacrifices on the part of all stakeholders and ask your patience and understanding as aspects of schooling change in order to maintain the health and safety of our staff and students. There will be a meeting on July 30, 2020 at 3:00 and again on August 3 at 6:30 in the Memorial Baptist Church fellowship hall to discuss our new covid19 plan and answer any questions parents and prospective families may have. TCA’s new affiliation with Liberty University will also be discussed. Please call or email the school to reserve seats at the preferred meeting date so that we may arrange for social distancing to be maintained.
