Reporting Safety Concerns

We encourage all parents and community members to help keep kids safe by reporting any safety concerns or suspicious online behavior. This can include things such as harassment, threats to harm others, suicide, stalking, or potential abuse of a child. 

EMERGENCIES: (Serious Threats, Suicide, Abuse, Imminent Danger, etc.)  Call 9-1-1 or your local Sheriff or Police Department.

NON-URGENT CONCERNS: Contact your child's school OR LPS Safety and Security at (303) 347-3420.

You may also use Colorado's anonymous tip line,SAFE2TELL, to anonymously report anything that is scaring or endangering you, your friends, or your family.

Cellphones

Cell phones are amazing devices but all kids need support and guidance related to safe and healthy use of a personal phone.  "Smartphones" provide internet access either through the cell service or a wi fi connection.  Many devices like ipods, iphones, and ipads can access the internet through a wi fi connection even without cellular service.  In LPS, we have filters on our wired networks and wi fi networks, but students can still access the internet through unfiltered cellular service on their phone.  

See the resources below to help support your student to use their phone wisely.
