COVID-19 Update (March 12, 2020)

Dear Northland Families,

Northland continues to actively monitor the situation with COVID-19, in conjunction with neighboring school districts as well as state/local/federal officials. We are aware of yesterday’s announcement from the World Health Organization concerning the virus being labeled a pandemic and recognize the concern this brings our community. While there are NO confirmed cases of COVID-19 within the Northland Christian School community at this time, we do know this virus is highly contagious, and want to work with vigilance to mitigate issues here.

Northland Christian School has decided to proactively close school next week (March 16-20). We will not hold any athletic or extracurricular events this week. Our staff will continue their work to prepare for distance learning as that is a likely possibility. More information regarding distance learning for our classes will be sent out next week.

Social distancing has been noted as the best defense against this virus spreading. With many Northland families traveling over Spring Break, an additional week off campus will allow families to monitor their health for COVID-19 symptoms and minimize exposure.

We will update our campus community a week at a time with an email on Thursday’s by 5:00 pm. Please expect communication regarding the week of March 23-27 by Thursday March 19th.

As we closely follow this rapidly evolving situation, we are also taking extra steps and precautions by having the campus cleaned extensively by our contracted cleaning service. As always we will carefully consider all factors as additional information emerges, in order to make the best decisions possible for the health and safety of our NCS community.

We will continue to communicate and keep you informed as we approach our school learning, whether that be face to face on campus or in a distance format from home. Thank you for all that you do to keep our community healthy and safe.
