Effective July 1, 2024, all Indiana schools will be required to participate in current legislation regarding the restriction of cell phones in our schools. This bill was signed by Indiana’s Governor, Eric Holcomb March 12th, 2024. The purpose of the restriction is to decrease distractions while increasing classroom engagement helping us to fulfill our promise of delivering a high quality education. Beginning the first day of school, Monday, August 12th, we will be fully enforcing the Governor’s order to strengthen our existing cell phone policy so that during the day, our campuses are phone-free and academically focused. Please see the full policy here: https://5il.co/2qrem

January 17, 2024 Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s), This morning, we became aware that there was a weapon discharged in the boys bathroom of our Gary Lighthouse College Prep Campus. We are currently on a hard lockdown and police are assisting us in searching the building. We performed checks on lockers, bookbags and body checks on all of the scholars. During the search, we did uncover a weapon. The scholars were identified, the parents were contacted, and the proper authorities were made aware of the actions. It is standard practice that if incidents of this magnitude occur, the police department will support the school in these situations and will provide instructions for us to follow. No one from our school community was injured or harmed and we have no belief that any of our scholars are in danger. School safety is of the utmost importance, so we wanted to outline critical details from our safety plan at NWILCS - College Prep that are in action so you are aware: ● College Prep has additional staff members monitoring the inside and outside for safety throughout the school day. ● The extra doors to the building have alarms on them so we know when someone has entered or left the building due to the alarm sounding. ● No visitors are allowed inside the building without an appointment. Anyone needing to discuss matters with the Front Office will not be permitted past the vestibule. ● Interior doors to the school are secure, not allowing access to the building. ● All doors to the building open for arrival and dismissal have school personnel posted so unauthorized people cannot enter the building. We ask that moving forward; you also check your scholar's book bag before they leave for school, in conjunction with our bag checks. We also ask that you continue to speak with your scholar around appropriate social media usage. Please continue to reinforce with your scholars that they report to an adult if they hear or see something that could potentially cause harm to our school community. Our scholars usually do well with reporting things, but we appreciate the added support as we work together to keep everyone in our school community as safe as possible. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. Thank you, Jessica Beasley Executive Director/Superintendent Northwest Indiana Lighthouse Charter Schools (219) 501-1881 | nwilcs.org 17 de enero de 2024 Estimados padres/tutores: Esta mañana nos enteramos de que había un arma descargada en el baño de niños. Actualmente estamos bajo estricto bloqueo y la policía nos está ayudando a registrar el edificio. Realizamos controles en los casilleros, mochilas y controles corporales de todos los estudiantes. Durante la búsqueda, descubrimos un arma. Se identificó a los estudiantes, se contactó a los padres y se puso en conocimiento de las acciones a las autoridades correspondientes. Es una práctica estándar que si ocurren incidentes de esta magnitud, el departamento de policía apoyará a la escuela en estas situaciones y nos brindará instrucciones a seguir. Nadie de nuestra comunidad escolar resultó herido o lastimado y no creemos que ninguno de nuestros estudiantes esté en peligro. La seguridad escolar es de suma importancia, por lo que queríamos resumir los detalles críticos de nuestro plan de seguridad en NWILCS - College Prep que están en acción para que usted esté al tanto: ● College Prep cuenta con personal adicional que supervisa el interior y el exterior para garantizar la seguridad durante la jornada escolar. ● Las puertas adicionales del edificio tienen alarmas para que sepamos cuando alguien ha entrado o salido del edificio debido al sonido de la alarma. ● No se permiten visitas dentro del edificio sin cita previa. Cualquier persona que necesite discutir asuntos con la oficina principal no podrá pasar por el vestíbulo. ● Las puertas interiores de la escuela son seguras y no permiten el acceso al edificio. ● Todas las puertas del edificio abiertas para la llegada y salida tienen personal escolar colocado para que personas no autorizadas no puedan ingresar al edificio. Le pedimos que revise la mochila de su estudiante antes de que se vaya a la escuela, junto con nuestros controles de mochila. También le pedimos que continúe hablando con su estudiante sobre el uso apropiado de las redes sociales. Continúe reforzando con sus alumnos que informen a un adulto si escuchan o ven algo que podría causar daño a nuestra comunidad escolar. A nuestros estudiantes generalmente les va bien al informar cosas, pero apreciamos el apoyo adicional mientras trabajamos juntos para mantener a todos en nuestra comunidad escolar lo más seguros posible. Si tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en comunicarse. Gracias, Jessica Beasley Directora Ejecutivo/Superintendente Northwest Indiana Lighthouse Charter Schools (219) 501-1881 | nwilcs.org
