Safety and Security

  • The safety of our students is always our number one priority. We have a school-wide safety plan that our safety committee reviews annually. Students practice our safety plan via monthly safety drills. 

    Our district has invested in interior and exterior perimeter gates and monitored security cameras to secure our campus. All visitors to our campus who have not already had a complete background check by LCSB must sign in through our Raptor system for screening and tracking. Please have your driver's license or ID card ready to scan on your first visit. 

    Everyone has a role in keeping our campus safe. Remember, if you see something, say something. The Florida Legislature established the FortifyFL app and website as a suspicious activity reporting tool for all of Florida's schools. You can make an anonymous or non-anonymous report.

    We take bullying and harassment seriously and explicitly educate our students regarding what actions constitute bullying and how they can report it. The form attached to this page can be used to make an anonymous or non-anonymous report about a possible bullying or harassment incident.
