COVID-19 Updates & Information

 

Lighthouse Christian School is continuing to closely monitor the changes and updates regarding Covid-19.  Our recent LCS Parent Survey will provide direction and focus to our planning efforts throughout the summer.

A comprehensive plan for next year will be announced in early August 2020.  Lighthouse will continue to work with the state, health department, and other Christian and private schools, to make plans that meet our needs and fit our community.

Please check for school communications and if you have any specific questions, please email or call Jessi Markham at 253-858-5962 or jmarkham@lcschool.org.

Dear Lighthouse families,

 

With unprecedented times, come unprecedented challenges.  As we continue in our COVID response, I appreciate how this provides an opportunity to demonstrate to my daughters and all young people how to respond well and live life during a challenging time. I want all kids to have a Christ-centered, nurturing community around them especially when times are more uncertain. This is where the value of Christian education and our educational experience is so strongly felt.  We are blessed to have so many dedicated and loving faculty and staff that want to do what is God-honoring and what is “best for the students.” We, at Lighthouse, want to provide a safe and excellent education and we know that we cannot do that without the partnership and support of our families. School leadership has been focused on honing the plan for next year while listening to families and being responsive to state and health department guidelines.

 

With this in mind, we have created four documents that state what is currently proposed by the school for September:

 

      1. Facility Cleaning Measures
      2. LCS Response Plan to COVID-19 Symptomatic Person on Campus
      3. LCS Operations and Program Summary
      4. LCS Distance Learning Plans

 

After reading these documents, we invite you to take the COVID Response survey. The survey will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. You are highly encouraged to read or review all documents before taking the COVID response survey. Your feedback will provide direction and focus to our planning efforts throughout the summer.

 

I must emphasize that all plans, as currently proposed, can be subject to change by the time school starts, but they are all communicated in good faith. The results of this survey will be reviewed by the school administration and school board and made available to all of you within three weeks. We plan on finalizing our plan for the start of school by the beginning of August.

 

Lighthouse will continue to work with the state, health department, and other Christian and private schools, to make plans that meet our needs and fit our community. Please continue to pray for our school and the plans for next year.  I look forward to seeing all of you this September.

 

Living to Serve,
