Distance Learning & Covid-19

Distance Learning & Covid-19 Updates

The health and safety of our students and school community is one of our highest priorities at Trinity Christian School. The leadership of Trinity is closely monitoring the local and national health authorities. We are following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Allegheny County Health Department, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and other governmental agencies. We ask the entire Trinity Christian School community to keep this evolving situation in prayer and specifically remember our international students whose families are in China.

Building Closure and Distance Learning

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and mandates by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, Trinity Christian School closed its building on March 23 and initiated our plan to prepare for distance learning. March 23-24 were used to allow teachers to prepare for our switch to distance learning. Our teachers participated in an online seminar with Mr. Aaron Sams, who is internationally known for his “Flipped Classroom Training” and expertise in online learning. On Wednesday, March 25 students in grades K-12 participated in their first online class meeting to familiarize them with the Zoom platform and other online applications.

Prevention

The best methods to reduce the risk of getting this or any viral respiratory infection include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces
  • Stay at home away from others if you are sick
  • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands
  • If your child exhibits respiratory or flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough or difficulty breathing contact your healthcare provider.
  • Incubation period may be as long as two weeks, and children and young adults may be asymptomatic or with very mild symptoms.
