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.  For the latest information on this topic, please visit the Tacoma Pierce County Health Department website. 

DAILY HOME SCREENING
Beginning Monday, November 2nd, students will be sent home if the Daily Home Screening form has not been regularly completed.  It continues to be very important that we follow the Health Department guidelines.  Please make sure that you are completing the Daily Home Screening every morning before 8:15 AM for your student(s).  We understand that a day can be missed, here and there. Please set this reminder for yourself.  Thank you for your efforts.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
We are currently implementing an enhanced integration between our RenWeb and FACTS platforms. The final steps of this process will take place mid-morning on Wednesday 11/4/20. Please note you may experience a temporary outage (30-60 minutes) during that time if trying to access any billing/financial-related information in RenWeb. This will not affect any other areas of access such as gradebooks, homework, etc. Also, please note that once the integration is complete, you will no longer be able to access your FACTS account through the normal link (https://online.factsmgt.com/). You will now directly access it through your RenWeb/Family Portal account (https://logins2.renweb.com/logins/ParentsWeb-Login.aspx). When logged into RenWeb/Family Portal, you will see a link that says “Financial” that will connect you to your tuition and incidental balances and allow you to make payments or changes directly in RenWeb. One of the great benefits of this integration is a single login between your family information account and your financial account. No more having to remember two different website URL’s and two sets of logins. If you run into any issues or have questions regarding your account once the integration is complete, contact kbare@lcschoool.org.

If you know of any families that may be interested in Lighthouse for next year, applications for the 2021-22 school year will be available on our website beginning Monday, November 9th.  NOTE: This application is for families who are looking to enroll new students for next year (not currently enrolled for the 2020-21 school year).  The application process begins in March of 2021, but applications can be submitted early.  Applications are processed in the order they are received.  Applications for siblings of enrolled students will be processed first, with Open Enrollment beginning in March 2021.  There is a non-refundable $90 application fee for each student.  IF YOU HAVE A STUDENT(S) CURRENTLY ENROLLED AND ATTENDING SCHOOL AT LCS THIS YEAR (2020-21), DO NOT COMPLETE THE APPLICATION for your student(s).
