To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, UMEI Christian High School campus will remain closed until May 12, 2020 at the earliest. Our utmost priority is the safety and well-being of our students, our staff and the community. We are closely monitoring the situation and will be providing updates as they become available. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important school updates:
- The roll-out of distance learning began the week of March 30, 2020, following March break. Classes are being offered online.
- In addition to their coursework, students participate in daily virtual chapel.
- School events and in-person community fundraisers are being cancelled or postponed for the safety of participants.
- In-person school tours have been postponed until further notice, but admissions is online.
Our prayers are with those who are suffering during this unprecedented time. We encourage all members of the school community to continue to protect themselves and others. Resources can be found on the Ministry of Health’s website.
With our fundraising events being cancelled or postponed, your continued support during this difficult time has allowed our students to continue to learn from home. This is an unprecedented time and your continued generosity is very much appreciated.
“I have been very impressed with UMEI’s response to the current quarantine situation. UMEI staff did not skip a beat the first week back to study after March Break. That tells me that the staff and teachers spent their break preparing for online study. As a parent, I am so happy that they did!
It has been a very scary experience for us all, especially our children. My daughter received such an inspiring letter from one of her teachers stating that she was in this situation with them and would support her students through this trying time. We all needed to hear that! The students and parents very much needed reassurance.
UMEI has been able to maintain the school community even through a quarantine and the response to the situation is a testimony in itself to the benefits of a small school dynamic. I am so happy that my daughter is a student at UMEI!”
