NorthPointe Christian's Safe School Re-Opening Plan
October 12th, 2020 update: Due to an order issued by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, students grade Kindergarten through 5th grade will be wearing masks throughout the day. Early childhood students will not be wearing masks in the classroom.
Continued Distance Learning Through Year End
Today our Governor announced her plan to close schools through the end of the year. NorthPointe Christian has been anticipating this possibility and has been preparing accordingly. NorthPointe Christian's delivery of high quality, biblically integrated academics will continue through the end of the school year in the distance learning format that we have already implemented over the last couple of weeks. We are committed to moving forward through this COVID-19 crisis by continuing with each grade level curriculum, connecting with students relationally and academically, and keeping Christ central. Each of our students will be able to complete grade level content and be in a position to move to the next subsequent grade. Our academic school year will conclude on June 5th - or, in the case of seniors, May 13th - as originally planned.
Our delivery format has changed, but our mission of "equipping students to impact the world for Jesus Christ" has not changed.
Thank you for your continued partnership (and increased hands on involvement) with us as we navigate these unprecedented times.
