Updates and Happenings

Forcey Christian School strongly encourages parents and their children 12 years of age and older to get vaccinated for Covid-19. The Center for Disease Control and other reputable medical agencies state that the Covid-19 vaccines are proven to be safe and effective against Covid -19 and the recent Delta variant. In addition, your vaccine, and the vaccines of siblings 12 and older, will protect your younger children who are not yet eligible for the vaccine. The best way to keep children in school and community spread down is for all those eligible to get vaccinated.

  1. Forcey Christian School returns to in person learning 5 days a week for the 2021-2022 school year on August 30, 2021.
  2. At this time, Forcey Christian School will follow the guidelines of Montgomery County Public Schools and require all staff and students to wear face masks regardless of vaccination status. This decision is made carefully as the majority of the people in our building are under 12 and are not yet eligible for the Covid-19 vaccines.
  3. To start the year, students do not have to wear their face masks outside at recess or during outside PE or sports activities.
  4. For the present, daily Frontline health screenings for students will continue to be required. Nurse Barrant will be communicating with parents regarding setting up your child’s Frontline account.
  5. Students will eat lunch in the cafeteria. To start the year, we will continue to use clear plastic shields for students to eat behind.
  6. FCS will conduct in-person back to school events. All persons entering the building must be masked regardless of vaccination status.
    1. Parent orientation night: One or two parents may enter the building and go directly to classrooms for the event. No siblings or children may enter the building for back-to-school night. Check our website calendar for specific dates and times:
    2. There will be an open house for students on Friday, August 27 from 1-3 pm. One parent or guardian may attend with registered FCS students only.
      We are preparing for the return of fall sports. More information will follow from our athletic director Mr. Mark Stewart
