PARKING LOT UPDATE

Lord of Life is thrilled to welcome back our staff and families for another great year at Kids of the Kingdom preschool!

In order to practice safe social distancing and to follow guidelines from our licensing agency KOK has begun using a Car Line process at both drop off and pick up times. This is a big change for our KOK staff and families but through the first 2-weeks they have been working hard to make it an efficient and helpful process.

What does this mean for Lord of Life? If you need to come to Lord of Life for any reason, we advise you to avoid coming between 8:45 and 9:15 am or 1:45 and 2:15 pm. During these times there will be a line of parent cars from the front door driveway through the parking lot and out on to S. Panther Creek.

If you cannot avoid that time, please pull in from the Glen Loch side of the parking lot and please watch carefully for children/parents who may be in the area. Feel free to wave and greet our students and staff as you make your way to the building.

KOK has always been a powerful outreach for Lord of Life. This year, with so many other area pre-schools not able to open, it is even more crucial for our community. We thank you for your support and encouragement of the ministry and for your understanding of these changes to the normal flow in our parking lot.
