In accordance with Governor Kemp’s suggestion yesterday and guidance from the Georgia Department of Health (DPH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Brookwood Christian School will move to Distance Learning effective Monday, March 16. We will remain closed for the week and update you on a week by week basis.
While our campus will be closed, the education of your child will continue. All staff will work remotely to best support students, including delivering digital and physical instructional resources to students while they are at home. Teachers will be available from 9 – 3 (just like a regular school day) with a break from 11:30 – 12:20 for lunch and students to take a break.
The decision to close schools was not easy. After the private schools in Cherokee & Bartow closed, and the closing of Kinkaid, we knew this would be inevitable, we just did not want to create a situation where families had a student at home and siblings at school. After reviewing the closures of the public schools yesterday, we knew the time had come to transition students to our distance learning model and close campus.
We know that you may have questions regarding how the school closure will impact you, and we will work to provide you the answers.
We will continue to keep you updated on the next steps during the school closure process as we turn to our distance learning resources. We are in the process of getting materials together and you will start receiving information from teachers if you haven’t already. We will also keep important information on our website.
We know this is a very difficult time for our school families and the community. We will work together to get through this.
Look for more information throughout the day including phone numbers and contact information.
