Coronavirus Updates

3/31

     Governor DeSantis has extended school closures through April 30th. As previously stated, we want our actions to honor Christ. Honoring Christ includes serving people and respecting our Government.

     We will continue with our current schedule of Monday - Thursday, 9 - Noon on-site 8-1 ratio classroom learning, drive-thru & drop off service, and email assistance for all. Please know that we are here to serve your children and want to provide them with these opportunities to learn. We also want to provide as much "normal" as we can for our families while we continue to educate. 

     As of now, per our regular school calendar, Easter Break will be April 8th - April 17th. On April 20th, we will start a Monday - Thursday 9 - Noon schedule for all grades, along with drive-thru service and email direct assistance. It is our plan for this schedule to continue through April 30th. Please understand that as the Governor makes adjustments, we too will be required to adjust.

     A few need to knows:

  • Students should be dressed in school uniform when they are dropped off for their 9 - 12 days. 
  • Monthly scripture memorization is not required during these months of school closures. It will be reassessed when school re-opens.
  • Graduation requirements have not changed.
  • We are in the process of planning other options if graduation services are canceled.
  • Re-enrollment forms can be dropped off in the drive-thru or emailed. 

     If you have any questions or concerns, you can email your child's teacher or call the school office.

     Stay safe and remember that God is not stumped by this pandemic. He still deserves our praise. Psalm 107:8-9.

In addition to the Monday - Thursday, 9 AM - 12 Noon hours we will be open to educate (please see schedule in bold below), we are also going to offer a drive-thru service for all of our students and parents. You can drive thru to drop off your child's books and we will exchange them while you wait in your car.

     Our staff will grade the books you turn in and use that to give them an average test score. We ask that you drive thru just as you would for carline and wait patiently for one of our Staff members to come to you. We know some of our families are at a higher risk and we want to help you during this time in a practical way that will make you feel more comfortable and help your child to stay on track.

     As always, we are here to serve you! If you need anything, please feel free to reach out to your child's Teacher or to the Administration.  Stay healthy, stay safe, and TRUST JESUS! John 14:27

ZCA Parents and Students:

     We, at ZCA, want our actions and response to this pandemic to honor Christ first and foremost, we desire to respect our Government and to do all we can to protect the health and safety of our students and families.

     After much prayer, we have made the decision to open our doors beginning March 25th from 9-12 Noon for education. This schedule will continue through April 7th as follows to ensure we adhere to the social distancing suggestions handed down from government agencies.

     This is an option for all students, but is not a requirement.

9 am - 12 Noon

  • Grades K-2: Monday and Wednesday
  • Grades 8-12: Monday and Wednesday
  • Grades 3-7: Tuesday and Thursday

     K-2 will operate like a traditional classroom setting because they need foundational teaching.

     3-12 will be open for testing, academic help, and to issue new books. (More like how we do summer school if you are familiar with that.) It is not required that students arrive at 9 or stay until 12, but these will be the hours we will be providing in person assistance. We will also continue to provide email assistance for all academic needs. Students should arrive in school uniform and should have their own school supplies (calculators and pencils) to prevent the spreading of germs.

     We ask that all students and parents respectfully follow our drop off and dismissal process. Students should be picked up no later than 12 Noon. Parents should remain in their cars in the carline while waiting for their child, this will help us to ensure we do not exceed the 10 person max in any area at one time. We also ask that anyone who has a fever or any flu like symptoms completely avoid coming to school. If your child arrives at school symptomatic, they will be sent home.

     Please also understand that this schedule is subject to change as more information is handed down to us. You can look here at the school's website for the most up to date school information.
