Dear LFCA Families and Stakeholders,
We thank you for your continued support of Little Flock Christian Academy during and through these unprecedented times. As a school family, we successfully navigated unexpected school closures, the new world of distance learning, drive-through awards programs, and postponed and reimagined 8th-grade graduation. It wasn’t always easy, but you all showed great endurance and determination. We celebrate the accomplishments of both students and families!
As we all now focus on the 2020-2021 school year, we understand that there are many questions, concerns, fears, and apprehensions concerning what the school year will look like. We want to assure you that we are actively working on plans to continue to provide a quality, Christ-centered education to your students. We are gathering and assessing information from various sources such as the Kentucky Department of Education, the Association of Christian Schools International, the CDC, our family surveys, conversations with other school leaders, etc. As with any topic, there are many different thoughts and opinions about current and future restrictions and recommendations. As always, we have to take into consideration what is best for our students and staff. While information and guidance continue to come out and are ever-changing, we want to inform you of the plan at this moment, understanding that not every aspect is set, and all plans are subject to change.
We are currently planning to start school, as originally planned, on Thursday, August 20, 2020. We intend to have full school days, with everyone in the building for in-person learning. In order to accomplish this, we are going to have to change some of our methods without sacrificing any of our mission. We are currently working on plans including but not limited to:
- Increasing cleaning and sanitation
- Monitoring the health of students and staff
- Increasing social distancing wherever possible
- Staggering arrival and dismissal times
- Restricting visitors in the building
We want you to understand that we intend to continue to develop the whole student and currently do not have plans to discontinue enrichment classes, chapel, recess, or other activities. However, we realize that all of these things will look different than they did before.
As soon as we can provide more detailed plans and information regarding these changes, we will communicate those to you. For now, please continue to be in prayer for the administration, school board, and staff, as we all continue to plan and prepare for what proves to be another exciting year at Little Flock Christian Academy!
Thank you again for the honor and privilege of partnering with you in the education and development of your children. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
The Administration and School Board of Little Flock Christian Academy
