    Delaware County Christian School remains committed to in-person education

    For many students, an impactful and intentional education requires regular, in-person social, emotional, and educational investment on the part of educators and administrators in order to find success in the classroom. Situated in Delaware county, Delaware County Christian School (DC) has been leading and educating students from a variety of backgrounds for 70 years. While many local public schools have decided on primarily remote and/or online education for the upcoming school year, DCCS has remained committed to providing a high-quality, in-person Christian education for students of all ages while also investing heavily in protocols to protect against COVID-19.

     

     

    With a move to online education for all grade levels back on March 16, DC has since invested considerable time and resources to solidify processes and methods for remote learning in case the school would ever have to move completely back to online learning. These online options still exist for at-risk and sick students, but a return to in-person education remains the plan for the upcoming school year. DC’s administration has developed a rigorous plan to maintain the health and safety of students, school families, and faculty and staff for the upcoming school year. In a recent virtual town hall with parents and faculty, Daniel Steinfield, head of school administration, stated proudly that “We are ready for another successful school year at DC.”

     

    Over the course of several town halls, Steinfield and the DC administration laid out the school’s plan for reopening and answered questions submitted by students, parents, and other members of the community. The school’s multi-layered approach seeks to minimize the spread of COVID-19 while providing maximum opportunity for students to receive in-person instruction. To ensure the safety of all students, faculty, and staff, DC’s protocols cover cleanliness and hygiene, classroom density, face coverings and PPE, physical distancing, and ventilation. With a voice of optimism and enthusiasm, Steinfield said, “we are taking every necessary precaution to ensure that our students can return to school safely.”

     

    Parents, students, and members of the community are encouraged to review DC’s reopening guidelines by visiting www.dccs.org/2020-2021. For questions about the opening procedures or for general inquiries, please email dccs@dccs.org or call (610) 353-6522. For questions about enrollment, please email admissions@dccs.org.
