The definition of “Valor” is courage in the face of adversity. We are built to lead in times such as this, and you can expect our very best efforts, wisdom and actions as we face the year ahead. You can count on our resolve and commitment to approach this year with great enthusiasm, confidence and joy for the privilege of partnering together in such a worthy endeavor as preparing tomorrow’s leaders to transform the world for Christ.
In addition to our focus on the health and safety of our entire Valor community, we will expect and encourage personal responsibility for your own health and that of others who are most vulnerable. The following protocols and procedures (below) are currently in place for summer and are being put in place for the safe return of students for the new academic year.
We are committed to offering your students an excellent education, grounded in a relationship with Jesus Christ and one another. As we prepare for various COVID-19 contingencies for returning to school in the fall, we believe that now more than ever students need to be with us, on campus growing in their faith, building friendships and experiencing life-changing opportunities that can only happen in person. It is our intent that students will be back on campus, with classes held in-seat, with appropriate social distancing measures in place.
We will be using several communications channels — social media, website, digital updates and on-campus signage — to keep you informed throughout the summer and upon returning to school.
Valor is introducing an ongoing COVID-19 “3R” Campaign. The three R’s stand for Reopen, Return, Remind. This will begin over the summer, highlighting Valor’s Summer “Reopening,” our Fall “Return to School” and daily campus “Reminders” of hygiene and safety protocols throughout the fall.
Fall Athletic Plans
Utilizing the guidelines put forth by CHSAA, Valor plans to start fall sports on time, with the caveat that things will evolve and change. Valor is following CHSAA policies and procedures for our athletes.
Information about Valor’s athletic summer and fall return-to-school protocols are here.
Vendors will be required to wear a mask while on campus meeting or working onsite. Vendors will be required to affirm they are symptom free and have not been exposed to COVID-19 prior to being allowed on campus.
We value and appreciate the contributions our parent volunteers throughout the school. They will be welcome back on campus but will also be asked to sign a health verification form.
