Class of 2023

Dear Parents, 
I hope you all are having a wonderful day. October 1st is almost here which means the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) will go live! Most schools do not require you to fill out the FAFSA, but some do require it. I recommend that all students fill it out and send it to the schools that they are applying to. It is also important to get it filled out ASAP. It opens on October 1st and I highly recommend that you get started on that date. 

KHEAA (Kentucky Higher Education Authority), is coming to LCA on October 12th for a FAFSA night. It will be from 6-8pm in the library. They will give a short presentation on the FAFSA and then help you fill it out if you need assistance. A list of materials that will be needed to fill the FAFSA out is included here. Also, please bring a laptop if you plan on filling it out during FAFSA night. 

As always, let me know if you have any questions! I look forward to seeing you on October 12th from 6-8pm for FAFSA night!

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. Watch a video here about how to order lunch.

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.

GRAB 'N GO

Students in 6th-12th grades can purchase items at the Grab 'n Go area in the lunchroom. Click here for a list of available items and prices.

2022-23 Major Dates available here.

In January 2018, the Commonwealth of Kentucky changed the immunization requirements for students enrolled in both public and private schools, as well as day care centers. All students must have two doses of the Hepatitis A vaccine prior to the start of the 2018-2019 academic year or show evidence of having the shot series in progress. In addition, students must have the booster dose of the quadrivalent meningococal (MenACWY) vaccine at the age of 16 (previously the booster was required at age 18).

Parents must provide the school with a copy of the EPID-230 "Certificate of Immunization Status" (rev. 2017) showing that the student is CURRENT for all required immunizations. No other form of documentation can be accepted, including partial EPID-230 forms, old forms with the new shots handwritten on them or pharmacy receipts for vaccination. Students who are not in compliance with immunization requirements must be suspended from attending classes until their record is brought current and submitted to the school.

Medical Exemptions are now noted on the EPID-230 if students are unable to be vaccinated due to medical reasons.  A separate doctor's letter is not required.

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."

An audit of the immunization documents will be conducted and students whose documentation is expired, incomplete or missing will have 14 days from the date of notification to be in compliance and avoid suspension.

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 or see the Kentucky Public Health "Amended Immunization Regulation (902 KAR 2:060) Answers to Frequently Asked Questions" for more details regarding the new regulations.

Students who do not meet the prerequisites or have not been recommended for advanced courses may submit a request to be approved for the course. The Academic Placement Waiver request will be reviewed by the student's counselor and the academic department. If approved, the student may be conditionally enrolled in the requested course. Continued enrollment is contingent upon successful academic performance in the course, which will be evaluated both within the first four weeks of the course and at the mid-year semester break. A hard copy of the waiver form is also available to pick up in the High School Office.

Students do not need to submit an Academic Placement Waiver to opt out of an advanced (Honors or AP) course and into a College Prep-level course.

To request the opportunity to request approval for independent enrollment in a Dual Credit course not offered at LCA, complete this form.

LCA does not keep copies of high school diplomas in our archives as they are not legal or academic documents, but are rather a certificate of completion presented as a gift to the graduate. Official certification of your completion of the high school course of study at LCA is made only through the official transcript, which notes your date of graduation.
