April 3rd, 2020

A virtual conference was held with area school superintendents this morning (April 3rd) and the collective belief was that it is in our best interest to wait for further clarification next week by the Indiana Department of Education before making any additional adjustments to our school calendar for the remainder of the year.  Updates will be provided as they become available.

As we begin our scheduled spring break, enjoy time with those close to you, take the opportunity to reach out (virtually or by phone) to others, and know how much you are appreciated for the role you have played in ensuring that learning continues for our students.

Print this articleRun, Hide, Fight

The La Porte Community School corporation has adopted a crisis response tactic for students and staff known as Run, Hide, and Fight.  This particular response slogan and tactic has been widely accepted across the nation as a simplistic way to educate staff and students how to respond to an active threat if it were to occur at school.

This year, staff and administration began what will be ongoing training on Run, Hide, Fight.  Run, Hide, Fight training is intended to help students and staff act quickly and rationally in the event that they are faced with a threat.   We are beginning to engage students in discussion surrounding the Run, Hide, Fight posters that are being displayed in every classroom. 

Discussions and training that we have with high school students will be much more detailed than with elementary students.  The use of the word fight calls for some explanation.  We want to be very clear that we are not advocating that students fight or teaching them how to fight.

Fight in this sense essentially means to do as a last resort, faced with an offender, defend yourself.  Fighting, in cases of elementary and middle school students may simply mean distracting, screaming, and throwing items at hand. We know from incidents across the country that anything our students and staff can do to buy time for the authorities to act is important. 

Click on the link below to review a Run, Hide, Fight presentation/explanation. This will be beneficial in the event that you discuss the tactic with your children.  It is also important to remind children that our schools are in fact safe and the likely hood of us ever needing to use these tactics are slim.  Failure on our behalf to prepare, however would be negligence.
