  • How to Talk to Your Children about the School Closing - April 17, 2019

    Dear LPS Parents, Please see the following resources from our Social, Emotional and Behavior Services office for tips on talking with your child about today's school closure.   We are continuing to monitor the situation and our staff will be prepared to support students when they return to school. Thank you,  Littleton Public Schools     How to Talk to Your Children about the School Closing April 17, 2019 Be honest about the situation, but don’t give more details than needed. Children need brief, simple information that should be balanced with reassurances that their school and homes are safe and that adults are there to protect them. A way to explain to younger children might be: “The police are looking for someone who needs help because they are worried she might hurt herself or someone else.” Let your children ask questions. Give space to let them talk and listen to their feelings. Don’t be surprised if your children don’t have a lot of questions or concerns - many times children will quickly return to their typical routines. Limit exposure to details and media coverage. Adults also should be mindful of the content of conversations they have with each other in front of children, even teenagers. Continued exposure to media can increase anxiety and fear for both  children and adults. Remind your children that there are many people working together to keep schools safe. When we return to school there will be opportunities for students to talk about school safety.  All schools have mental health professionals and they will be prepared to support students. For more detailed information on how to talk with your child, please see that attached document or visit NASP.com.

  • Cómo hablar con tus hijos sobre el cierre de la escuela de 17 abril 2019

    Estimados Padres de LPS, Por favor, vean los siguientes recursos de nuestro oficina de Servicios Sociales, Emocionales y de Comportamiento para ver las maneras de hablar con sus hijos del cierre de escuelas de hoy. Seguimos evaluando la situación y nuestro personal estarán preparados para apoyar a nuestros estudiantes cuando regresen a la escuela. Gracias, Las escuelas públicas de Littleton   Cómo hablar con tus hijos sobre el cierre de la escuela de 17 abril 2019 Sé honesto sobre la situación, pero no des más detalles de los necesarios. Los niños necesitan información breve y simple que se debe equilibrar con la garantía de que su escuela y sus hogares son seguros y que los adultos están allí para protegerlos. Una forma de explicar a los niños más pequeños podría ser: "La policía está buscando a una persona que necesita ayuda porque les preocupa que pueda lastimarse a sí misma o a alguien más". Deja que tus hijos te hagan preguntas. Dales espacio para que hablen y escucha sus sentimientos. No te sorprendas si tus hijos no tienen muchas preguntas o inquietudes, muchas veces los niños regresarán rápidamente a sus rutinas normales. Limite la exposición a los detalles y la cobertura de las noticias. Los adultos también deben tener en cuenta el contenido de sus conversaciones que tienen delante de los niños, y incluso los adolescentes. La exposición continua a los medios de comunicación puede aumentar la ansiedad y el miedo en adultos y niños. Recuerda a tus hijos que hay muchas personas que trabajan juntas para mantener la seguridad de las escuelas. Cuando regresemos a la escuela, habrá oportunidades para que los estudiantes hablen sobre la seguridad escolar. Todas las escuelas tienen profesionales de salud mental y ellos estarán preparados para apoyarles a los estudiantes.

  • ATTEND A COMMUNITY VISIONING SESSION

    We are excited the voters of Littleton Public Schools passed our local bond in November. Thank you for your support!  As you might remember, a portion of the bond dollars were to be directed toward new furniture for all schools, three new school buildings, and the creation of a CTE/Innovation Center. As we prepare to refresh some of the physical aspects of education, we also want to think about a fresh approach to learning in LPS and what our students need to be successful in this rapidly changing world. We want you to help us create the vision for the future of learning in Littleton Public Schools. Please see the invitation and register for a Community Visioning Session. Your voice matters! Brian Ewert, Superintendent Beth Best, Executive Director, LPS Foundation
