As a reminder, your incoming 6th grade student is required to have:

1. School Preventative Physical Exam (These are not the same as the sports physical exams). 

2. Current Immunization Certificate  

A student enrolling at Lexington Christian Academy must provide proof of immunizations from the State of Kentucky as required by Kentucky Law. All required immunizations must be up-to-date. All forms must be completed and on file in the school office within two weeks of the beginning of school (WEDNESDAY, Aug. 24th) or the student will not be allowed to continue in-person education at school. The student will be allowed to return to school when all requirements are met. If you are not sure about the required immunizations, please check with your family doctor. Parents may also file a Religious Declination form. This is the required form and no other documentation can be accepted. Be advised that the "Kentucky immunization regulation does not permit philosophical exemptions to immunizations. Kentucky only has medical or religious exemptions to immunizations."

A copy of the updated immunization and preventative exam forms can be faxed or emailed from your medical provider, or by you, to the attention of  Nikki Gehring, Rose Campus Nurse (see info below). You can also email a copy to:

Nikki Gehring – Rose Campus Nurse 
ngehring@lexingtonchristian.org
Fax: (859) 223-3769
Phone: (859)422-5711

If you have any questions regarding Kentucky's immunization requirements for school attendance, please visit the Kentucky Department of Education website or Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services website. A brief summary of the changes to the immunization requirements is available here.

Lunch and adding funds to an eagle account

Lunches are ordered via the FACTS Family portal or the LCA app. They can be ordered daily or for an entire week at a time.

Click here for step-by-step instructions to order lunch via the FACTS Family portal or the app and to also add funds to an Eagle Account. 

All lunch orders must be entered by 8:30 a.m. Any order placed after 8:30 a.m. will receive a brown bag "emergency" lunch.

If you ordered a lunch and your student will be absent that day, you must call the office by 8:30 a.m. to cancel your order. Orders cannot be canceled after 8:30 a.m., and you will be charged for that day's order.

Lunch orders will be invoiced a week at a time on Friday for that week's orders. Once you receive the invoice, the charges will deduct from the account attached to your Incidentals Account in FACTS in 10 days. You can log into FACTS Family and pay the invoice with an alternative method of payment.
