Principal's Corner

Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety. Proverbs 11:14

Dear Families,


Although we are certainly through the worst of it, COVID is here to stay. Because it has become less lethal for most people, it is easy to think of it as just another virus, but it isn’t. There are still specific guidelines around how we should responsibly deal with the virus, which I posted in our handbooks at the beginning of the year.
I hadn’t stopped to think about the way our view of COVID has changed since we quit masking. Two weeks ago today, I thought I was coming down with a cold. It wasn’t until later that evening when I became really ill that I  realized it wasn’t a cold. I tested positive for COVID. By then I had been to church and had run multiple errands, all without a mask. I feel bad thinking about all of the people I exposed to COVID because I thought I just had a cold.
This leads me to a request: when you see your students getting sick, please test for COVID, even if you think it’s just a cold. You really can’t know initially. If they have active symptoms without fever, have them mask. Keep them home when fever is present or they are feeling ill. We don’t want to be spreading colds any more than we do COVID.
If your student has COVID, they must isolate for 5 days. That hasn’t changed. When they return, they must mask through Day 10 unless they have two consecutive negative tests on two consecutive days after Day 5. COVID is potentially contagious from two days before symptoms appear until 10 days after the first symptoms are noted, even if symptoms are greatly reduced or gone.
If you need home COVID tests, you may request them through the USPS site here. We also have them available at Concordia.
Thanks for taking these measures to keep the spread of COVID and other viruses low through this cold and flu season.
In Christ,

Sherrie Gibelyou



Dedication of the Tommy Allison Memorial Scholarship

Last week’s chapel service was special. The memorial plaque for Tommy Allison was installed and revealed by Mr. Boyt after a formal dedication. Many of Tommy’s family were present, and others came to pay their respects, including active military officers from JBLM and Fort Campbell, KY, where Tommy was serving at the time of the incident that took his life in 2002.


Col (R) Rick Polczynski, former Regiment commander of the 160th (Tommy’s commander at the time of the incident in 2002) came to pay his respects with his son, CAPT (P) David Polczynski who is currently a Night Stalker at 2nd Battalion Ft. Campbell, Ky (Tommy’s Battalion). 


It was a moving experience – one that I think our students will remember.

Pastor Appreciation and Military Families Recognition

Chapel Service

On November 8, we will have the opportunity to say, “Thank you!” to the pastors who minister to our CCA families. Invitations were sent home with your students, and they are encouraged to invite their pastor to our chapel service at 8:40 a.m. Please encourage your students to extend this invitation and remind their pastors to call us with their RSVP. We would love to see the network of pastors grow at CCA!


Additionally, in honor of Veteran’s Day, we will recognize and give thanks to our military families who sacrifice so much in service to our country. Whether you are a veteran or are actively serving, we would love to see you in your military uniform.


This chapel will provide a wonderful opportunity for our students to see firsthand how their community serves them – from servants of God who sow the seeds of faith with God’s Word, to servants of our country fighting for our continued freedoms – this promises to be a powerful chapel.


Please plan to attend!

CCA High School’s National Honor Society is collecting new, unworn socks for our community neighbors in need. You will find bins in our 100, 300, and 400 Buildings. Please help support this worthy cause! 


Socktober ends this week!
