|Re-opening Plans 2021-2022
Covid-19 Protocol CCS
Crossroads Christian School will adhere to all national, State, and local orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This plan will be subject to change as federal, state, and CDC guidelines, in addition to executive orders updated. Crossroads Christian School will rely on national, state, and local guidelines when making decisions on how to best reduce risk and protect our school/community. Crossroads Christian School acknowledges that no single action or set of actions will completely eliminate the risk of COVID-19 transmission, but implementation of several coordinated interventions can greatly reduce that risk. This plan was developed using Santa Clara County Public Health Departments COVID-19 prepared: Reopening of Santa Clara County K-12 School guidelines. This is our revised edition as of August 3, 2021.
