We love our LION FAMILY

Whether you have current students at MLCA or have another connection with our school we are so glad you are part of the Moses Lake Christian Academy Family.  Here are some basic things you need to know.

Student Drop off

  • Please drop off all Elementary students at the playground gate between 7:40 and 8:00 a.m.
  • Late Elementary students need to be escorted to the Elementary office by a parent and checked in.
  • Secondary students can be dropped off in the circular drive between 7:40 and 8:00. (7:00 if student is in detention.)
  • Late Secondary students need to be escorted to the Secondary Office and checked in by a parent.
  • If you are dropping off ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY students, please use the elementary drop off area for both students. Secondary students can use the sidewalk in front of the elementary building to walk to the secondary building.
  • Preschool parents should drive around the back of the buildings to the Preschool drop off area where they can walk their child to the back door to the Elementary Building where the teacher will be waiting. 
  • Parents should not exit their vehicles while their car is in the drop off lanes. If you need to talk to a teacher or get out of your car, please park in the parking lot.

Student Pickup

  • All families except Preschool will be given a number card to display in the window of their car. 
  • As your car enters the Driveline pickup line the number will be entered and your child’s teacher will send out your child. 
  • Once your child has entered your car please proceed to the exit.
  • Preschool parents will pull around to the back of the buildings to pick up children.
  • Parents should not exit their vehicles while in the pick up lanes. If you need to talk to a teacher or get out of your car, please park in the parking lot.

Student Absence

  • It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify the school as early as possible in the morning if the child will be absent from school. Please email attendance@mlca.us to let us know your student will be absent. If there is no communication from the parent/guardian by 8:15 a.m., an attempt will be made by MLCA secretaries to contact the parent/guardian to learn the reason for the absence.  It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to email or call indicating the reason for the absence. A determination will then be made as to whether the absence is excused or unexcused.
  • If you know your child will be missing school it is beneficial to the students and the teachers to pre-arrange the absence and coordinate how the missed work will be made up. There is now an "Application for Pre-Arranged Absence" form that you can fill out to make this request. Parent’s are asked to submit a form for each child. For Elementary parents, please submit form to office and office will submit to teacher. For Secondary, the student will take form to each teacher to fill out for homework and then present to secondary office.

Information for the LION FAMILY

  • Sycamore school

    Sycamore  is the official site for MLCA families. Our teachers use it to post grades, and it includes calendars, news, documents, and more. Parents can stay up to date on how their child is doing throughout the semester. The site also gives families of current students access to the family directory, keep track of your service hours and more. The Pass-A-Note feature is a great way to stay in contact with teachers and you can also send messages to other parents. The MLCA school code is 1477. Call the office to find out your access code to Sycamore. 

  • Events

    The school calendar will keep you up-to-date on all that is going on at Moses Lake Christian Academy. You can view and subscribe to our calendar on the Events Page and download a pdf of the school calendar.
