  • No Reports of Credible Threats to Any LCS School

    We understand that many of our parents and students have seen posts on Instagram with a “screen shot” claiming that our schools have received threats. This screen grab is from a Tallahassee Democrat article from January 25, 2016. Our schools are among the safest places in our community and we have received NO credible threats to our campuses. We will continue to do what we can to improve, but we need your help in stopping the spread of rumors.
