Emergency Information

In the event of emergency closures, Life Christian Academy will announce specific information via:

  • The school website
  • Facebook & Twitter
  • Office voice mail (253.756.2190 or 253.756.5317)
  • Text message and email notification using PowerSchool messaging preferences

The following radio/TV stations will also carry emergency information: KIRO AM 710, KOMO AM 1000, KOMO TV Channel 4, KING TV Channel 5, KIRO TV Channel 7, KCPQ TV Channel 13. On days when we have inclement weather or late school start, please monitor these stations in the event we need to send students home early.

10:00am Start” means:

  • Student attendance is at parents’ discretion with regard to the safety of the route that must be traveled between home and school; once a student is at school he or she must remain there until regular dismissal or parent pick-up. If a parent determines that safety conditions warrant the student staying home, a note must be sent or emailed to the office upon the student’s return to school.
  • NO before school care
  • NO morning preschool
  • Buses run late (Gig Harbor 9:15 and 9:30 am, NE Tacoma 9:05 and 9:20 am, Lakewood/UP/Spanaway 8:55, 9:10, 9:25 am)

Finally, here are some useful links to news information sites for your convenience:

Another option to consider is KING5’s Text Alert service. Designed to provide breaking news, weather and sports updates to cell phone customers, it will also provide school closure alerts. LCA is listed in the Private Schools section.

In the event of a campus evacutaion, there is also a Parent Reunification Plan plan in place.
