Safety and Security Update
Lewis-Palmer School District utilizes SRP (Standard Response Protocol). Faculty and staff receive training and participate in practice drills numerous times a year. Staff also talks with students about procedures used in any drill or potential real events. Each school implements monthly drills so that students and staff can practice a variety of incident responses. These practices allow us the opportunity to evaluate and improve our procedures often.
LPSD also works with all local law enforcement agencies, training with them and receiving recommendations. We also train our schools on "when in doubt" procedures which allows teachers and students to self-evacuate if they believe that is the safest decision.
LPSD continually works to make sure our district is the safest possible. In early February 2018, LPSD Chief of Safety and Security Dennis Coates met with Dr. David Benke of the i love u guys foundation. Benke is the now-retired teacher who risked his life in order to save students by tackling the shooter during the Deer Creek Middle School shooting.
School safety is an everyday job, and every day LPSD is aware of the precious lives we house. We take this responsibility seriously.
