    Safety and Security Update

    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 you 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.

    More information regarding LPSD safety procedures is available here.

  • ELECTRONIC FLYER DELIVERY - PEACHJAR
    Lewis-Palmer School District will begin delivering school information and approved flyers from community organizations electronically with Peachjar on January 26, 2018.

    These school-approved eflyers will be emailed directly to you from LewisPalmerSchoolDistrict#38@peachjar.com.  Additionally, you will be able to view eflyers by clicking the Peachjar button on your school’s website homepage (active January 26, 2018). This “green” initiative saves our schools tons of paper and reduces copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers. If we have your email address on file, then no action is required on your part.

    More information available here.

    Before & After School Care
    Children absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe time well spent in a fun, safe and supportive environment before and after school is a primary building block for quality of life and future success of children. Children feel connected at the Y where they can make friends and learn how to be their best with the Y’s values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We promote positive self-esteem, life skills, teamwork, leadership, creativity, and educational support.
