Here are the projected plans for in-person instruction next year. Please note that this is subject to change as we receive updates from LA health officials. When permitted by the county, our small class cohorts will merge into one standard class sized cohort. While we will continue to provide distance learning for the remainder of this school year, our goal for TK-4th grade next year is to transition away from distance learning, allowing teachers to focus entirely on students inside the classroom.
 
For our 5th-8th grade, we are prepared to continue to provide distance learning should enough of these students elect to remain remote next year. Moreover, 5th-8th grade will have the option to learn from home or on campus while our lower elementary grades will transition back to only in-person instruction.
 
Families who are still not ready to return to the classroom should contact the School Office so that alternative options can be provided to them. Please see Mr. Swales' video above for more details regarding our plans for next year. Keep in mind that our plans will continue to evolve as the county gives us more information. As we all know, this situation remains fluid and we will keep you updated regularly.

WE ENCOURAGE ALL OF OUR FAMILIES TO RETURN TO CAMPUS!
Planning for next year, parent feedback needed!
We are requesting your feedback at this time regarding our plans for next year. Please help us better understand your needs by sharing your much appreciated feedback. Families should expect another update next week after we review the results from the survey.
Reminder: Make Up Pictures

Re-Enrollment
Thank you to all of our families who have re-enrolled for next year. It has been an honor to serve you in providing students with excellence in Christian education. Please keep in mind that families who enroll early will be able to keep the current tuition rate that they've had this year. Our school office is keeping very busy with new prospective families seeking to enroll for next year. For this reason, families who wait to re-enroll may be charged a higher tuition rate and risk losing their spot in the classroom next year. We are strongly encouraging our families not to delay. Secure your spot in the classroom before classes reach capacity and also secure your current tuition rate by re-enrolling now. Sign on to your Facts Family Portal to complete the Re-Enrollment Packet. The District Code is "WVCS-CA". Click here for more detailed instructions on how to re-enroll
Please expect a personal phone call from our Financial Director, Trisha Herget, regarding re-enrollment and tuition payment plans for next year. Mrs. Herget will be happy to provide you with any technical assistance as well as answer any additional questions you may have. You may also reach out to her via email:
