 “Safe Return-to-School Policy”


East Rankin Academy is looking forward to welcoming our students back for the new school year! As we are diligently preparing for the return of students to campus, new safety protocols and procedures are being implemented as we endeavor to protect the health and well being of our students, faculty, and staff. At the current time, our plans are for K3-12th grade students to be on campus daily for face-to-face instruction. Our plan for returning to campus includes the following safety protocols and procedures: 


  • In order to return to school safely, all students, faculty, and staff will wear masks. (Each K3-12th student, faculty and staff member will be provided two masks with school logo.) If not wearing the school provided masks, only solid white, or solid navy, or solid red masks may be worn at school….masks are to be free of design or writing.
  • Our school personnel and student screening process will include temperature checks and visual screenings of overall physical state.
  •  To help protect against the spread of the COVID-19 virus, group sizes will be limited in the dining hall, restrooms, playgrounds, and common areas. 
  • Proper hand washing will be required to help protect against the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Hand sanitizer may also be used between activities. 
  • Routine cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces and objects frequently touched will be maintained.
  • Notification to students, parents, faculty, and staff concerning positive  COVID-19 test results will be provided when applicable. 


 Due to COVID-19, the following changes are being made for some of our back-to school schedules. Please note that Back-to-School Nights/Orientation Meetings have been cancelled for all grades except the following:


8:00-10:30    Wednesday, August 5

 K3 (students only) will attend Orientation and Practice Day


8:00-10:30    Thursday, August 6 

K4 (students only) will attend Orientation and Practice Day 


8:00-9:30    Friday, August 7  

9th Grade (students only) will attend Orientation Day  


We are looking forward to welcoming all of our students on our first full day of school, Monday, August 10. Even though our world has experienced significant changes in recent months, our goal at East Rankin Academy remains the same…to provide our students with a Christian education featuring excellent academics, competitive athletics, and enriching extra curricular activities.
