A Blueprint for Back-to-School
Lancaster Baptist School is excited about our plans for the return to school on campus this fall! We have been praying and working collaboratively with local health departments, legal counsel, local education agencies, the California Interscholastic Federation, and other Los Angeles County Christian schools to make informed, thoughtful, and practical plans for the 2020-21 academic year. Click the button below to view our plan for a responsible return.
The Lord has blessed LBS for 31 years and we believe the best is yet to come!
