D38 Deliberates: A Community Engagement Opportunity
The public is invited to a community engagement opportunity on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. in the District Administration Building. The topic is Preschool: Centralized vs. Site-Based Locations. We will discuss the benefits and challenges of both preschool options. A trained facilitator will lead small group discussions. This is a chance for your voice to be heard! See this flyer for more details.
Impact Aid Surveys
Impact Aid surveys are being mailed home the first week of November to parents/guardians who are active duty military. Completed surveys allow Lewis-Palmer School District to apply for the Federal Impact Aid Grant, which assists school districts who educate federally-connected children. Since the money we receive is directly affected by the number of children claimed in our application, please take the time to complete your survey and return it to your child's school.
Questions: please contact the district registrar, Jim Taylor, at 719-488-4701 or firstname.lastname@example.org
DAAC and CPA Ballot Information Forums
DAAC and CPA hosted two ballot information forums where a panel answered questions about the D38 November ballot questions. The panel was made up of LPSD school board members, administrators, a security expert, and an architectural expert.
The forums took place on September 13, 2018 and October 11, 2018 (watch on YouTube), in the Learning Center of the LPSD Administration Building.
We apologize for the technical difficulties evident in the October 11, 2018 forum recording. The last few minutes of the event did not record.

Prom night is a very special night for our juniors and seniors who attend Prom and After Prom. Many students, staff, and parents have put in countless hours to make this a memorable event. We want this night to be a positive, lasting memory for all attendees. Safety and security of our students is a top priority for us. Appropriate dress by our students will help us achieve this goal.
As you are searching for prom attire with your students, please help us by reminding them that prom is a formal event and even though it is offsite, it is a school sponsored activity and school dress code policies apply.
All Prom attire should be formal in nature and reflect a dressing “up” for the occasion. Young men should wear a suit or tuxedo, and young women should wear a dress. Casual dress, or clothing that is low cut, too tight or too sheer that bares or exposes traditionally private parts of the body including, but not limited to, the stomach, the buttocks, back, and chest could be considered inappropriate.
Students wearing inappropriate prom clothing may be:
If you or your student have any concerns about their clothing choices, please feel free to ask our opinion ahead of time. Thank you for your continued support of our school community and for your help in maintaining a safe and enjoyable environment for our students.
