High Point Christian Academy High School Moves to Online Learning

High Point, NC – High Point Christian Academy sent the following communication to their school
community on Monday, September 28, 2020. This communication was to ensure the
transparency of what school administrators, the HPCA board, and medical team members have
been preparing for throughout the summer.

Dear HPCA Community,
Over the past week, our high school has been impacted by several positive COVID-19
cases. Through this, we have been in constant communication with the Guilford County Health
Department regarding quarantine procedures for others exposed.

We have always stated that the health and well-being of our Cougar community is of utmost

Since there has been a slight increase in cases and quarantines within our high school
community we will transition to online learning for our high school students’ only beginning
today at 3:00 p.m. This decision was made through guidance and recommendation from the
Guilford County Health Department, our medical professionals, and our administrative team.

This also means that all high school extracurricular activities (including all varsity and JV sports)
will be canceled during this two week period.

We have already been in contact with our sanitizing company, and in addition to the extensive
cleaning protocols we have already taken, they will be on campus this evening to deep clean all
impacted areas.

While we know that this impacts our high school students, we want to continue transparency
through our community with our entire school community. If you have any questions, please
feel free to let us know. We thank you for your patience, and understanding, as we work hard to
keep our students healthy and on campus this school year.

Through our contact tracing we are able to identify that these cases are not all linked together.
Health protocols, physical spacing, wearing masks, and hand washing mandates that have
been on our campus will continue to be enforced.

Since moving our high school students to online learning Monday afternoon, our cleaning
company come has deep cleaned, and fumigated all common areas, in additional to their
already extensive cleaning procedures.

We value and appreciate the understanding of our parents, and we will continue to teach our
preschool through middle school students in person. We look forward to welcoming our high
school students back to campus on October 12 where we are hopeful to resume all high school
