COVID-19 UPDATE

FMCS Updates

Following the guidance of the governmental safety organizations, Fort Myers Christian School has closed through April 30. During this time, the school and grounds are being deep cleaned and disinfected. Currently, we plan to reopen on May 1.

All extra-curricular events are cancelled until further notice. We will post any changes and updates here as well as on our social media channels.

Throughout this time of uncertainty, we know that the Lord is in control and that there is no need to worry. We pray that he continues to guide us as we await the outcome of this virus on our state and nation. Join us in praying for our students, families, school, neighbors and nation as we cast all our cares upon the Lord who comforts us during difficult times. “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace” Numbers 6:24-26 

Update April 4: information on changes to our school calendar due to the Governor’s Executive Order:
– April 10: No school assignments, spend time with family and observe Good Friday
– April 13: this day was a “no school” day on our calendar, but there WILL be school assignments on this day. The day/hours of school may help as we complete the state mandated days/hours of school for this year.

Update March 30: And so it begins…As we start this week of online learning, this is a first for our history. Everything will not be perfect. There will be adjustments as we move along.

Teachers met today and are preparing Seesaw and FACTS/Renweb to get ready for a new form of teaching for a new time in our history starting March 30th. More details to come.

Update: March 16: Note to parents: We are also working on ways to continue to provide an excellent Christian education for your children.

We are preparing work on Seesaw to provide for virtual learning to cover those essential standards that need to be covered in the 4th quarter.  This will officially  begin on March 30th, but we will try to share information the week of March 23rd. More updates regarding this to come.

Thank you for your patience as we adapt and figure out the best way to serve our students during this time. If we can pray for you and your family, please feel free to email requests to info@fmcs-fl.com.
