COVID-19 Information

Current Updates

As conditions continue to develop, be sure to check back soon for further information on closures and plans for our Lutheran South community. 

April 9, 2020
Due to the recent state order, Lutheran South will finish the school year through e-learning. We are doing our part in stopping the spread of the virus and keeping our community safe. MSHSAA also has canceled all spring sports. Although we knew this was likely, we still know that it is disappointing. More details will follow in the coming days regarding the end of school, picking up personal belongings from campus, graduation and other planned events. Even in our disappointments, we are blessed to know that Jesus is our Savior. We will get through this! Have a blessed Easter.

Lutheran South will continue to comply with government orders throughout the duration of this health crisis. At the current time, St. Louis County Executive Order #13 and the accompanying "Stay at Home" order by the St. Louis Department of Health project that our e-learning formats can be expected to continue until April 22. Based upon the rapidly changing nature of this crisis and our nation's and region's response to it, we can expect modifications to these orders. We all hope that this crisis begins to abate soon and that hopefully, we can return to on-campus activities before the end of spring.
