FAQ - Room & Board Fees
What is happening with room and board charges during the time the dorms are closed?
LPS is working on the question of how to manage room and board fees to students. We recognize that returning or rebating a portion of these fees is the right thing to do. However, please understand that this is not a simple matter. There are some steps currently being undertaken to help determine what should be refunded or rebated.
First, we are working with Pioneer College Caterers to determine the amount of food lost savings and other non-fixed cost savings that might be realized during the closure of the campus.
Second, we are looking at what kind of utility and operating cost savings might also be realized. At this point in time, we do not know how long the campus will need to remain closed.
We are planning a follow up discussion with our fellow Synod schools no later than the 2nd week of April. As decisions are made and more information is available, we will notify families as quickly as possible.
Thank you for your patience.
