COVID-19 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What if we are unable to pay tuition?
We are offering limited, special financial assistance to families that are unable to meet their obligation currently. Those who are in that situation should contact Jennifer White for details on applying for assistance.
2. Will we be getting a tuition refund?
The board has been working through how we can best address all the changes that have occurred due to the coronavirus and the stay-at-home order. It has required parents and school staff to make a lot of changes to how we operate, and it has been difficult for everyone on at least some level. We hope that you have not only been able to cope with the changes, but that you are also able to see God's hand working in your life and the lives of your family, as well as in His world.
As we move forward with the education process in this new format, we continue to pay our teaching staff. We will also continue to pay our hourly staff, in some cases utilizing them on different tasks as needed. Because our expenses remain relatively normal, we will continue to bill for full tuition. We understand that the circumstances surrounding the coronavirus may be causing financial hardship for some of our families, so we have developed a COVID19 relief fund to help those in need. Since Lafayette Christian School is ultimately a partnership between families, wouldn't it be great if we could all come together to make sure everyone's needs are met? (Sounds like something the church body should be known for, doesn't it?)
3. How can we donate to help families who may be struggling to pay their tuition?
