See Something, Say Something

RISD High School Students and Parents,

 

This message is a reminder that the safety of our school, classmates, and employees is a responsibility shared by everyone. If you see or hear something that potentially threatens the safety of anyone at school or about a classmate who may be in crisis, please say something to teacher, administrator, parent, or trusted adult.

 

Sometimes a person would prefer to report something anonymously, and for those situations, our school provides a system called Anonymous Alerts. Readily available through the high school homepage, RISD’s Safety & Security website, and bookmarked on every student Chromebook, Anonymous Alerts allows a person to make an anonymous online report about any situation that potentially impacts the safety or well-being of our school, any student, or any employee. All Anonymous Alerts reports are investigated by RISD, and if necessary, by police.

 

Please remember, situations that are true emergencies should be reported to 911, or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

 

Thank you for taking a moment to think about the safety of our school and to be prepared to say something if you see something.

that shows it is from "LHHS PTA" with a www.risd.org email address association, and you have not purchased anything from Membership Toolkit or the LHHS PTA store,  please contact your credit card company. 

This is not coming from Lake Highlands High School PTA, it is a scam.

PTA Members, Please Log your Hours

Please remember to log all of your volunteer hours! They include anything done for the  high school and should include work done for the school off campus as well as on campus.

Library Services - Did You Know? 

RISD Library Services offers updated Select Title Opt Out options to provide parents with an opportunity to identify specific titles to opt out of library checkout for their child. RISD recognizes that families and students are unique, and different parents may have varying expectations regarding their students’ reading lives and choices.
Parents who would like to opt their student out from access to specific titles can do so by contacting their school Library Information Technology Educator or visit the LITE website for more information or to sign up.
