Dear Conway Christian School Families,
It is with great excitement and expectation that we announce the re-opening plans for the upcoming school year. The Board of Directors, administrative team and staff have prayerfully and thoughtfully made preparations for a safe, productive re-opening of Conway Christain School.
We have worked tirelessly with our state and national partners in composing the proposed plans for re-opening with the following principles as our guide:
- Protect the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff.
- Utilize guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the SC DHEC in defining exposure and in decision-making.
- Establish effective use of spaces and places to support physical distancing.
- Develop new practices and procedures that best support a safe and healthy school.
- Provide frequent communication to the school community
The Board of Directors have approved an open date of Monday, August 17, 2020. In order to safely and effectively re-open campus, we will need your commitment as parents to follow the guidelines presented in our re-opening plan. It is vital that parents commit to doing their part in performing daily health checks on their students and being vigilant in watching for symptoms of the virus. Healthy kids are sent to school; sick kids stay home. We have modified our attendance policy to excuse any absence due to daily Health Screening restrictions and COVID-19 policy compliance. Our goal is to begin school on-campus and remain on-campus as we partner to ensure the safety and well being of all students. Our teachers are ready to assist students who require distance learning as a result of quarantine or as a carrier of the virus.
July 20 – Re-Opening Plan Update

Please take time to review the attached plan carefully. As we proceed, we want to do so in a way that obeys God’s greatest commands, to love God and to love others. (Matt. 22:37–40). If you have questions in regards to the upcoming school year or our plans to re-open, contact the school office. As we move forward we must all do so with great understanding and patience. We are grateful to the Lord for His faithfulness to the ministry of Conway Christian School and how he continues to guide our steps. Your prayers are asked for as we take the enormous step of re-opening. May we cling to our school verse that promises, “…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
In His Service,
CCS Board of Directors & Administration Team
