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.
Community business leaders saw, first-hand, that LCS Principals rarely have the opportunity to sit down during a typical school day! By acting a "Principal for the Day" the business leaders were able to meet students, see donations at work and identify needs within our local schools.
We are committed to providing an educational setting that is safe, secure, and free from harassment and bullying. A reporting tool has been created to appropriately identify, report, investigate, and respond to situations of bullying and harassment. All submissions will be forwarded to a school administrator. Please make sure you fill in all of the fields of this form so that administration can have a complete report to begin a successful investigation.
The new online reporting form: Online bully and harrassment report

Conley is one of the newest recipients of WeatherSTEM, an online platform that connects weather stations placed in schools around the district in order to compile all of the data the stations are collecting. There are two separate devices on our campus, a cloud camera that records the cloud movement over our campus, and weather instruments that track things like temperature, barometric pressure, wind speed, heat index, etc. There is a curriculum component with lesson plans that teachers can use to teach students all sorts of science, computer programming, and other STEM topics at all grade levels. However, anyone can visit our Conley WeatherSTEM page to access the latest data! Currently, WeatherSTEM is holding a competition to see which school can get the most Facebook "Likes" and the winner will receive small solar panels and possibly small motors to be used by students. Please help Conley out by going to https://www.facebook.com/WXSTEM and Like the WeatherSTEM page.
It was brought to the attention of the Tallahassee Police Department that several of our parents were parking in the bike lane on Orange Avenue when dropping off or picking up students. It is unlawful for vehicles to drive or obstruct designated bike lanes.
I understand that parents have utilized the parking on Orange Avenue for years; however, safety is our priority and I highly encourage you to utilize our car drop off/pickup area each school day. The Tallahassee Police Department or Sheriff’s Department has the authority to ticket any vehicle in violation of obstructing (parking) a bike lane.
The Tallahassee Police Department does not want to issue tickets and they have asked that I communicate this information to you immediately.
Please understand that Leon County Schools has no authority over the roadway and I am simply communicating to you what has been communicated to me.
Thanks so much for understanding.
