Lakeshore Christian School is not a corrective institution. Therefore, we ask that a child not be enrolled with the idea that LCS will reform him or her. The faculty and administration desire to work with the home, not take the place of parents who have experienced difficulty in child-rearing.
Applicants may not be accepted who use tobacco products, have run away from home, are living somewhere other than their parent’s home without parental permission, have been convicted of a crime, use alcohol or narcotics, or are married. Students of Lakeshore Christian School who use alcohol, narcotics, or tobacco products on or off school property, run away from home, or are convicted of a crime, may be suspended from school at the sole discretion of the administration until such time as the administration is convinced that such behavior has been terminated.
Students are expected at all times to conduct themselves in a manner becoming a Christian. Griping is not tolerated! If a child complains about a policy or discipline, parents are asked to follow this procedure:
- Give the school the benefit of the doubt.
- Realize that the student’s reporting is often emotionally biased without all the facts.
- Realize that LCS has reasons for all rules and they are enforced without favor.
- Support the administration and call the school office for an appointment with the staff member involved.
- Be willing to settle any dispute in a Christ-like manner.
At Lakeshore Christian School, a discipline is maintained which is firm, consistent, fair, and tempered with love. Our staff maintains standards of behavior in the classrooms through kindness, love, and a genuine regard for the student. However, when disciplinary action becomes necessary, it is firmly carried out, tempered by good judgment and understanding.
Students are reminded by these and other Scripture verses that the Lord Jesus Christ expects us to be disciplined in all of life:
- “Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.” Colossians 3:20
- “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers…” Romans 13:1
- “Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves…” Hebrews 13:17
- “He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth.” Proverbs 10:17
Demerits are given for disturbances or broken rules. More information on the demerit system will be distributed the first weeks of school each year. A detention hall will be held several days each week after school and those students who have accumulated enough demerits to warrant detention will be required to attend. Arranging transportation after detention hall will be the parent’s responsibility.
Excessive demerits may require attendance at a Saturday detention hall for which students will be charged. In-school or out-of-school suspension, or dismissal may also result when a student receives repeated demerits and detentions for the same infractions.
