Crusader Comments – January 17-21

Hello fellow Crusaders!  

It has been a little bit of a crazy start to the spring semester with the covid cases in our community. We have had a number of students in quarantine and a few that have tested positive. Thank you for your faithfulness in calling and letting us know when you or a family member has tested positive and for keeping your children out the required number of days and helping us provide a safe and healthy campus.


* Re-Enrollment will be online and starts on Monday, January 24. A link will be sent out by email on Monday, January 24 in the late afternoon. (Enrollment opens to the community on Monday, February 7.)  Please check your email address listed in Headmaster to ensure that it is the correct one to receive your Re-Enrollment link. If it is incorrect please change it and save your change(s). We will send out a Remind text to remind you to look at your email on Monday afternoon.
* Please see the Remind text information later in this document for instructions on how to sign up for Remind, if you haven’t already.

* COVID-19 Update – There are currently 4 positive student cases that we are aware of in grades K2-6th.  There are currently 3 positive student cases that we are aware of in grades 7th

Go Crusaders!

Have a great weekend, and make sure you are plugged into a local church body (Hebrews 10:24-25). If you do not have a local church that you currently attend, we invite you to visit us at Emmanuel Baptist Church at 9:15 for Sunday School and at 10:30 for worship

ECS PHILOSOPHY (p. 6 in the handbook) – Emmanuel Christian School is an academic institution, founded for the purpose of educating students from a Christian worldview and committed to maintaining and delivering a strong academic program.”
