Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cross Lanes Christian School has been exploring different and reasonable ways to provide services to all students. Cross Lanes Christian School has worked with state and local agencies, including our local health department, to draft and implement guidelines moving forward regarding cleaning, screening, social distancing, etc. Though the Cross Lanes Christian School and its agents will work hard to implement and abide by those guidelines, neither the guidelines themselves nor even guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) would allow the Cross Lanes Christian School to guarantee an environment that is entirely free of COVID-19 related risks.
By allowing your child to return to campus, however, you acknowledge and understand that your child’s attendance will require him/her to interact physically with the Cross Lanes Christian School’s staff members, other students, and even volunteers.
