Final Exam Info

Dear LCA Families, 

The countdown to the end of the school year has begun!  We are just a few weeks out from the end of the school year and final exams.  All students will be required to complete final exams for this school year.  Teachers will begin sharing details about final exam content in the coming weeks.  

To protect the academic integrity of our exams, all students are required to take their final exams in person.  Senior final exams are scheduled for May 10 – 14, and underclassmen final exams are May 17-21.  

If your son or daughter has been on SOI for the whole semester, we will make special classroom accommodations to ensure they are not within 6 feet of any other student testing or another location within the school.  Students who are on quarantine due to exposure to COVID or testing positive for COVID will schedule a time to take their exams in person when the quarantine is over.

Per policy, all students in grades 9-12 will be required to take a comprehensive final exam, and the exam will be calculated as 12% of their final grade.  Seniors will not be required to take the final exam for any course where they have earned an “A” for the second semester. Underclassmen will be exempt from one final during the second semester in a class in which they have an “A”.   

If you are an SOI student and you have questions, please reach out to Mrs. Julie Guilliams at jguilliams@lexingtonchristian.org.   

We pray for all of our students as they finish this semester strong.  

God Bless, 

Cassondra R. Koett, Ed.D. 
High School Principal

Meaningful Summer Opportunities

When it comes to preparing for life after high school there are a lot of ways to make sure you are being proactive: jobs, internships, camps, and study abroad opportunities are all great resume builders when you think about college applications or entering the workforce. In this list of meaningful summer opportunities, you will find different options broken down by subject area for your convenience. Due to Covid-19, some opportunities will look a little different this year, but any type of activity that you learn a new skill or sharpen those that you are passionate about is a meaningful one! 

 


LCA has established the Ruth Coppler Outstanding Teacher Award, to be given annually to an LCA teacher in memory of Mrs. Ruth Coppler, who was a beloved elementary teacher at our school. This award is established as a tribute to her love for teaching and to recognize teachers who share and exemplify that love. For more info and to nominate a teacher, click here.

Class of 2021

This section is dedicated to information regarding the Class of 2021. Important information will be added throughout the year.

2020-21 High School Information

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.

Good Afternoon LCA Students and Families!

For those that don’t know, my name is Joshua Palmer and I am one of the College Counselors that work with Juniors and Seniors. I also serve as the faculty/staff Dance Blue representative. I help coordinate with the University of Kentucky’s Dance Blue Mini-Marathon Chair to help set up the fundraising that LCA participates in each year. This year, Dance Blue is going to look very different at LCA. With COVID and the restrictions that it requires, we will not be hosting a Mini-Marathon this year. Our goal is to fundraise (safely) and continue to support Dance Blue to the best of our abilities.

In years past, students have been selected, in an informal process, to act as “Class Representatives” and help coordinate our version of Dance Blue. That process was not formalized and it created some disparity between students who wanted to help but felt that they weren’t given an opportunity to serve. Starting this year, our Senior Dance Blue Chairs are developing an application that students can submit who wish to serve as a Dance Blue Class Representative. All students, even those who have participated in leadership roles for Dance Blue in past years, will be asked to apply this year. It is our goal to allow any student who wants to assume a leadership role to do so, and this fosters accountability and ownership for the event’s success. The goal of this change is to create stability and provide students the chance to take ownership of an outstanding event.

Parents have always played a pivotal role in LCA’s Dance Blue Marathon. While we still desire your support, at its core, Dance Blue is a student-run event. We want to empower our students to make decisions, lead, and coordinate this event. While parental support is important, we do not want this to be an event for parents.

I know a lot of this is very different from what might have been expected. My goal is to be transparent and answer questions to the best of my ability. We are hoping to have the application completed soon and be able to offer that out to the student body. As we continue to traverse these murky waters, I hope that you will pray for our students and their success. This year will look different from previous years, but I know our students can make it a success!

Office Forms and Documents

In preparation for the arrival of our student body, we need all parents whose students are returning to in person learning to complete the form "Assumption of the Risk and Waiver and Release of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19" no later than Tuesday evening, August 18, 11:59 p.m.  This form is found in FACTS Family and can be accessed by doing the following:

Log into Facts Family Here: https://logins2.renweb.com/logins/ParentsWeb-Login.aspx. (District Code is LX-KY)

Under the School tab, click on "Web Forms."

Select the "Covid 19 Waiver Form" and complete it for each student in your family.

This form must be completed prior to your student returning to campus for the start of school. 

Please complete the School Compliance Verification: KRS 159.051 form, print it in color and bring it to the LCA High School office for verification prior to applying for your student driver permit.

Please complete the service hours form, including all required signatures, and submit to Mrs. Iler either via scan/email or hard copy.

Students who are ill or injured (e.g. flu, strep throat, surgery, etc...) and expect to miss several days of in-person instruction may request access Short-Term Synchronous Opt-In. This request will be reviewed and the parent/guardian submitter will be notified of approval/denial via email. 

LCA does not require or expect students who are ill or injured at home to participate in synchronous learning, it is simply an option we are making available to those who may be recovering. When students are ill they need to rest and should do so without fear of missing class. Their teachers will work with them when they return to discuss make-up assignments.  

Travel is NOT a valid reason to request Synchronous Opt-In. A student who is absent for travel will be marked Absent and must complete make-up work and assessments upon return.
