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.
Aliorum De Award
The Lewis-Palmer School District Special Education Advisory Committee is pleased to announce the first annual Aliorum De Award.
This award recognizes the dedication and commitment of an individual who has touched the life of an LPSD student with a disability. Any LPSD employee, community member, or student is eligible to receive the award. Recipients of the award are nominated based on the fact that their devotion to a student with a disability has made that student’s life better.
More information is available here. Nominations are due Friday, March 16, 2018.
Information Systems Security Update
LPSD actively secures and protects our information systems. In light of recent cybersecurity events involving schools around the nation, we want to remind our families of the deliberate actions LPSD employs to protect student data. Detailed information 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 LewisPalmerSchoolDistrictfirstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
