90 min delay

September 16, 2018
By LPA staff

To all LPA secondary families, instructors, and support staff:

After briefings with county emergency officials and other schools today, we believe weather conditions will be clear enough to hold classes Monday. For caution’s sake, however, we will operate on a delayed schedule.  

 

Delay:      Lake Pointe will operate on a 90-minute delay schedule on Monday, Sept. 17, 2018.

 

Why delay?

  • The delay allows staff members to fully assess campus conditions early and to communicate alternate plans before families and faculty begin their drive, just in case conditions unexpectedly change.
      
  • Extra time is permitted for cautious driving and the choosing of alternate routes to avoid low lying areas
     
  • While core class sessions are abbreviated, abbreviated class sessions still help teachers to maintain the normal routine and momentum.  

 

Campus

As of Sunday afternoon, conditions are dry, and both electricity and county water are working.

 

 

What it means for Monday

 

Secondary

  • Student arrival and classes operate on a 90-minute delay and modified schedule.
  • Students who attend on partial schedule should note the time changes involved.
  • Students in LPA activities, including athletics, will be notified separately by the director or coaches for instructions on these events, including modifications, location, etc..

 

Elementary

  • Elementary assignments will continue as planned for Monday.
    Parents: check e-mail Monday for any adjustments that may be made.

Monday: 1½ -hour delay                                     Sept. 17, 2018

Lake Pointe will open for classes on a 90-minute delay and modified schedule.

 

Campus open for students:     09:00 a.m.

Morning gather begins:           09:50 a.m.     

First period begins:                   10:00 a.m.

 

 

Modified secondary schedule

  • Core courses are abbreviated.
  • The schedule seeks to honor electives:
    • Class lengths are maintained, because they only meet twice per week
    • Start and end times are maintained, since some elective teachers come on their “lunch hour.”
  • Lunch, 5th and 6th periods, and the overall day-end at their regular times.

Inclement weather rationale and methodology
In making weather-related decisions, LPA seeks to balance a conservative and cautious approach with the needs to advance the academic program. Decisions are made independently, according to the unique needs of the academy’s families and faculties, based upon information and advice from various sources. These sources include:

  • York County Office of Emergency Management
  • NOAA weather forecast service
  • Department of Transportation and law enforcement “road conditions” reports
  • Other area public and private schools

Elementary End of the Year Celebration

May 07, 2018
By LPA staff

Come and celebrate the 2017-2018 school year with the elementary students and staff! 

Starting about 10:45 a.m., K5-6th grade students will showcase the fruits of all their hard learning labor in class presentations, and teachers will celebrate the growth they've seen in their students throughout the school year.

As tradition, 6th grade will wrap up the class presentations as the students take their "final walk" through the elementary halls before they move up into secondary. To see a short video of last year's 6th grade walk, click here.

Following the ceremony and 6th grade walk, families are invited to stay for a time of fellowship and games. Chick-Fil-A will be available for purchase--order forms will be sent home in student folders Tuesday, May 8.
