CCS teachers, brass manage ‘drive-by’ tasks

Concord Christian School administrators, including kindergarten through eighth-grade principal Leigh Ledet (pictured), and first-grade teachers Amy Rainwater and Renee Halbert, along with other teachers, greeted parents and children who visited the school Thursday, March 26, to pick up teaching materials to use at home for distance learning while the schools are closed to slow down the spread of COVID-19. The school transitioned to online learning Monday, March 30. To ensure “social distancing practices,” packets were distributed in a “drive-thru” format, but teachers kept it fun by waving, wearing silly hats and costumes and holding encouraging posters.

“We are blessed that our students (eighth-grade through high school) are required to have Chromebooks and we are able to supply families who do not have a home PC loaner Chromebooks so the on-line model will work for our school,” CCS director of marketing Stephanie Mason said in an e-mail. “At this time we hope to return to school to finish the semester in late April and will work hard to reschedule as many of our programs and events as possible.”
