Reopening Plan Fall 2020

Dear Parents and Friends of Grand Rapids Christian Schools,

We are excited to welcome students back to our campuses beginning Wednesday, August 19, 2020! 

In order to prepare the road to their return, a great deal of work has been accomplished over the spring and summer months.

Today, we are pleased to present you with Grand Rapids Christian Schools' Reopening Plan for the 2020-21 school year.  

The plan has been developed in close consultation and collaboration with the Kent County Health Department, follows health and safety guidance from state and national health officials, and was reviewed and approved by the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees on July 30, 2020.  

This plan contains very important information.

Please take the time necessary to review and familiarize yourself and your children with the details of the plan in the coming days, noting that the linked FAQs will continue to evolve and be updated as information continues to become available.
We have established a special email address for any questions you may have or if you would like additional information. Please email, and the appropriate member of our administrative team will respond.

While we do not know what lies ahead, Grand Rapids Christian Schools remains firmly committed to our mission to prepare students to be effective servants of Christ. We trust that God will guide us through this school year just as He has guided our schools for the last 100 years.

Please join me in praying for our school community as we make final preparations for the year. And know that we are praying for you and your family as we navigate the school year ahead together.
