Athletics: NRCA’s ability to offer athletics and compete is determined by the North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association (NCISAA) 

Fine Arts: NRCA Fine Arts Department follows the recommended Health & Safety protocols. Students eligible to participate in extracurricular activities under NRCA’s Health & Wellness Commitment are able to continue regularly scheduled practices and performances under the direction of NRCA’s Fine Arts Director. 

   
SPIRITUAL FORMATION

NRCA partners with families and churches in the spiritual formation growth of our students. Chapel days are scheduled for Thursdays and Fridays. However, the Fine Arts Center (FAC) will be limited in capacity. There is an established schedule/rotation for classes to attend chapel in the FAC. All other classes/students will attend chapel in their classrooms via a Live Stream video.

Aftercare activities are modified to follow health and safety protocols.

    
VISITOR & VOLUNTEER POLICY

NRCA will allow only essential visitors/guests on campus following a temperature check and health screening.

PHYSICAL DISTANCING


CLASSROOM LAYOUT REDESIGN

Classroom desks are separated as much as physically possible and face the same direction. Classroom furniture is limited to only necessary, NRCA-issued furniture increasing the footprint of each classroom.

   
ASSIGNED SEATING

Students have assigned seats in each classroom.


LUNCH IN THE
CLASSROOMS

Large gathering spaces like the cafeteria is limited in capacity. There is an established schedule/rotation for classes to eat lunch in the cafeteria. All other classes will eat lunch in their classrooms. NRCA’s lunch menu is modified to a box lunch using all of our normal vendors except Domino’s Pizza.


MASKS & FACE COVERINGS
Subject to change

Facial Coverings: Cloth or disposable face covering are recommended by the CDC and NCDHHS as a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling into the air and onto other people when the person wearing the mask coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice.

   
FLEXIBLE EDUCATION

NRCA encourages students to attend classes, on campus. However, NRCA also understands that not every student may be comfortable, or able to return to a physical classroom learning environment. NRCA will use Schoology and 1:1 iPad technology in grades K-12 to extend the reach of the classroom by providing students access to their classrooms remotely to maintain their daily learning schedule.  

   
SPECIALS & ELECTIVES

Specials and electives are offered, with health and safety protocols.

 

HEALTH & HYGIENE PROTOCOLS

Protect Yourself & Others

   
INCREASED SANITATION

Hand sanitizing stations have been added throughout NRCA’s campus. Classrooms are sanitized during class transitions.


DECREASED SHARING OF COMMON ITEMS

Drinking fountains are utilized as water bottle refill stations only. NRCA has increased daily disinfection and sanitization throughout campus with EPA certified cleaners effective against COVID-19.

NURSE’S OFFICE & QUARANTINE ROOM

NRCA has implemented policies and procedures regarding student care if COVID-like symptoms develop while on campus during the school day. PPE and a separate, designated quarantine room are provided while they are on campus.

   
HEALTH & WELLNESS COMMITMENT

NRCA asks families to commit to supporting NRCA’s health, wellness, and safety protocols by agreeing to keep their student at home when they are not feeling well, experiencing COVID-like symptoms, or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID. Parents are the first line of defense. By sending your student to school, you are confirming that – each day – you have screened your student using the NRCA COVID Symptom Screening.


REPORTING & MONITORING 

NRCA will follow our COVID-19 Symptom Screening for all students/staff self quarantining due to COVID-19. Parents/staff are asked to report any positive COVID-19 test result or exposure to NRCA.
