Everyone is fried from 16 months of global pandemic and post-pandemic stress. We need more summer, more family time, more time for teachers to recoup, and more time for scheduling and school preparation to occur. We could settle for a week to 10 days, under certain conditions…

It’s time to take a stand and as Christians, implore leadership at Heritage Christian School to roll back the school calendar now for 2021-22 from starting August 9, 2021 back to a start date of August 23, 2021. The calendar can be adjusted at the end of the school year to accommodate the later start of school. This will give new families a chance to better settle in to the area, as well as accommodate other sports schedules as needed.

Our educators have been Frontline workers in the global pandemic. My husband in particular has run every detail of the high school through his brain and even in dreams, probably, since March 12 of 2020. He is more administrative than the teachers. The teachers have done a combination of in person, hybrid, and virtual students for 16 months. They deserve our greatest gratitude. There is no greater way to show them thanks then to allow them more time to rest before they start it all over again.

This also will help with school budget as the volume of people in the buildings will affect the electricity running through the building to keep it cold in the hot summer as well as all the electronics running from inside and out.
