Re-Entry Plan 2020

Commitment to our SBS Family

Second Baptist School welcomed students and faculty back to campus this fall as we began the 2020-2021 school year. Our top priority is to do our best to provide a healthy environment for all community members as we strive to offer a high-quality, Christ-centered education to each student. The following plan was developed collaboratively by a task force comprised of school, church and medical personnel.

All students were invited to return for on-campus learning in August with enhanced safety measures in place. However, families also have the option to select virtual learning.

Both on-campus and virtual options began in an acclimation phase with staggered start days by division. Each division started with half-day schedules through Friday, August 28. Full-day schedules began on Monday, August 31:

Start Dates by Division
Lower School - Wednesday, August 19
Middle School - Thursday, August 20
Upper School - Friday, August 21
*See Schedule section below.
The SBS Re-Entry Plan 2020 began on Wednesday, August 19, and is currently in practice.

As an independent Christian school, we are grateful for the opportunity to provide both on-campus and virtual learning options for students and families and will adjust our approach as needed based on the latest medical data and wellbeing of our community. There may come a time during the school year when Second Baptist School must transition to a hybrid model of learning with limited numbers of students on campus at a time or 100% virtual learning for all students. Additional information will be provided in advance to families, faculty and staff if such a change becomes necessary. SBS is committed to making the best decisions for our community given our values, the current health guidelines and information available.
