WTCS Update – Thurs., March 19

Dear WTCS Parents, Students, Families & Supporters,

North Dakota Governor Burgum announced today that schools will remain closed until further notice. Williston Trinity Christian School continues to finalize our distance education plan which will be implemented starting Monday, March 23 and will continue for that week & the following week (through April 3rd). After that, we will take our Spring Break as planned from April 6th – 13th. We look forward to resuming learning on April 14th. Prior to that date, we will certainly give an update on future plans. Our staff has done an incredible job in a short time and we will continue to provide these great academic opportunities to the students of WTCS. In addition to packets for students in grades K-12 as stated in previous update, Preschool & PreKindergarten will have educational packets & instructions available to the students on Monday, March 23. We will continue to pray for your families and the situation surrounding the pandemic.

In Christ,
Cory Fleck

WTCS Update – Wed., March 18th

Parents/Students/Families/Supporters

of Williston Trinity Christian School

We were able to work with the teaching staff today; and collaboratively came up with a tentative plan for educating your sons and daughters in a possible extended school building closure that could continue in lieu of COVID 19 virus pandemic.  We are anticipating next week being a closed school as well.  By Friday afternoon, March 20th at the latest, we anticipate ND Governor Burgum making the decision regarding school opening/closing for next week.

Teachers are working hard to create quality distance instruction during this time. Administration and teachers met to discuss the best plan of action to do this. Although teachers will mold into what works best for their style and for their students, they worked together to find some common ground on how to deliver information to families.  The teachers will be administering a mixture of email, paper packets, and Google Classroom as the main platforms for teaching. Within Google Classroom, teachers will communicate and layout assignments for the students.

For Google Classroom to work for everyone, families will need a Gmail account.  Sheri Moonen, our Communications Director, will be sending families with non-Google email accounts (Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) a new Gmail address to use.  This will enable the families to access all educational information from their teachers.

Our educational distance plan is designed to enhance your child’s education from the current state.  Our goal is to create a fun, yet productive educational presence without too much disruption in our curriculum during this non face-to-face season of Williston Trinity Christian School.  As we roll this out, please be patient as it is still in its development stage.  We are committed to continually adding, improving, and adapting to make this a smooth transition to make this an excellent representation of education from WTCS.  Our goal is to continue as the premier Christian educational institution in the region.  We have the most dedicated, thoughtful, prayerful staff that I have ever worked with.  They certainly miss seeing your precious children every day.  We are excited for the upcoming interaction of this new format with the teachers and your student (s).

We certainly do not want to make this any more stressful or create any more anxiety for your family.  Please call/email/visit with us with your concerns.  We will strive to accommodate and adapt if needed for your family as much as we can.

Please call/email inform us if your family currently doesn’t have access to the internet or have any other challenges.

Materials/packets will be available for pick up on Monday, March 23rd, barring the decision of Governor Burgum.

  • We will have a plan for each student in PreS, PreK, and K – 5th grade, which will include packets, any digital/electronic learning, and any specific instruction ready for your student.
  • 6th – 12th graders will have a plan/packet from each teacher available on Monday as well. 
  • Pickup is from 8:30am – 12:30pm on Monday for families with last name beginning with A thru M. 
  • Families with last name starting with N thru Z, can pickup materials from 12:30pm –  4:00pm.
  • We will also be open Tuesday, March 24 from 8:30am to 5:30pm for any families that were not able to pick up on Monday.

Families, please consider picking up extra coats, and boots on Monday and Tuesday as well.  We are striving to completely deep clean every area of the school.  Without the extra garments, this will accelerate, accommodate, and streamline our cleaning efforts.

We will continue to pray for your families and the situation surrounding the pandemic.

He is control. 

Isaiah 41:10 

So do not fear, for I am with you;

do not be dismayed, for I am your God. 

I will strengthen you and help you; 

I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. 

 

God Bless

In Christ,

Important Update from WTCS

Dear Crusader Family,

Williston Trinity Christian School is committed to the safety, education and well-being of our students and staff.  This is our utmost priority.

We continue to monitor professional health and education organizations to ensure we are acting in a proactive manner to ensure we are doing what is best for our learners.

WTCS ensures that through collaboration and coordination with our local health department, school will take steps to disseminate information about the disease and its potential transmission within the school community. Measures have been taken to minimize disruption to teaching and learning and properly educating students about the impact this is having on our society.

Preventative plans will build on everyday practices, encouraging hand hygiene, disinfecting classrooms, monitoring absenteeism, and communicating routinely. For further health concerns or questions regarding your child in school, please contact our office.

Please refer to the CDC website for more detailed information. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

Thank you for partnering with Williston Trinity Christian School in the Christian education of your child.

Psalm 91:1-2  “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

 

In Christ,
