shalom health and safety plan

Shalom Christian Academy's mission is to Develop Lives of Consequence In the World for the Kingdom of God. We firmly believe the best way to do this is through in person instruction on our campus. The health of our students and staff is our top priority.

Shalom Christian Academy has adopted the following Health & Safety plan after consulting with healthcare providers, public officials, Shalom’s Health & Safety Task Force, and other school leaders.

Here are the highlights of the plan:
