Lighthouse Christian remains committed to providing quality, Christ-centered, full in-person education. School leadership has been encouraged by the low case rate in the greater Gig Harbor area and the effort every school stakeholder is making to provide a safe learning environment. Currently, we have not had any known cases of COVID at Lighthouse. While it is possible we could have a COVID case(s), we are focused on mitigating its spread and following best practices. It is very important that, as numbers in Pierce County rise, all of our families, staff, and faculty remain mindful of our safety protocols and continue close communication with the school. We are committed to providing up-to-date information, and we value your partnership.
We are looking into the opportunity to employ rapid testing as a part of school operations. School leadership is researching this option while being mindful of:
- Parent involvement as a critical component to the testing process
- Privacy of medical information
- Accuracy of the results
School Administration will be communicating a preliminary plan regarding rapid testing in early November. We will also be scheduling a Virtual Town Hall to keep you up to date with all of the new information.
