Lubbock Christian School COVID Updates
In this time of confusion and uncertainty, it is human nature to become fearful. I am reminded of several scriptures in which our Heavenly Father reminds us of his sovereignty and love for us. Proverbs 3:5-6 says ”5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take”. Philippians 4:19 says “19 And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” I want to reassure everyone that your LCS faculty, staff, administration, and Board of Trustees are seeking God’s wisdom with confidence in His provisions in every decision we make. He tells us to fear not for He is with us. The pandemic will pass. We will do our best to bring Glory to God in the manner with which we navigate this storm.
The LCS faculty, staff, and administration are eager to welcome students back to campus to start the 2021-22 school year. Over the past several weeks, we have worked diligently to prepare for our students in a variety of ways. We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the Lubbock area and want to reassure our families that our intention is to provide face-to-face instruction in a safe learning environment for the entire school year. Listed below is a summary of our efforts to prevent spread of COVID-19 while students are at school or school sponsored events.
Proper hand washing and respiratory etiquette will be taught and reinforced.
Frequent cleaning of classrooms, desks, band and athletic equipment by students and faculty.
Masks will remain optional, but students, faculty or staff desiring to wear a mask will be welcome to do so.
Visitors to campus will be allowed but will be asked to stay home if sick.
Students who develop a fever or symptoms concerning COVID-19 will be sent home for evaluation.
Students, Faculty and Staff who are exposed to someone with COVID-19 or who test positive for COVID-19 are asked to report this to our staff and will be asked to follow isolation and quarantine guidelines recommended by the CDC.
