April 1, 2024 Greeting’s NWILCS Families, Today, we are experiencing sewage issues at our Primary Campus. While everyone is able to use the restroom, the toilets are backing up in the main building. We have been working with a plumbing company as well as the Gary Sanitation Department who cannot provide us with a timeline of completion before the end of day. At this time, we have made the very difficult decision to make tomorrow an E-learning day at the Primary Campus. We understand the inconvenience this may cause but want to make sure all scholars and staff are operating in sanitary conditions. All scholars must be online via Google Meets at 8:30am to start their instruction. An instructional packet will be sent home for your scholar to complete. This is how we will determine the attendance for the day. If your scholar does not have access to technology, please reach out to your scholar's teacher or school leader via email. Please stay connected to all our outlets including the website, www.NWILCS.org, and social media platforms for the most up to date information. In partnership, Northwest Indiana Lighthouse Charter Schools 1 de abril de 2024 Saludos a las familias de NWILCS, Hoy, estamos experimentando problemas de aguas residuales en nuestro campus de primaria. Todos pueden usar el baño, pero los baños están atascados en el edificio principal. Hemos estado trabajando con una empresa de plomería y con el Departamento de Saneamiento de Gary, que no pueden proporcionarnos un cronograma de finalización antes del final del día. En este momento, hemos tomado la muy difícil decisión de que mañana sea un dia de E-learning en el Campus de Primaria. Entendemos lo inconveniente que esto causara, pero queremos asegurarnos de que todos los estudiantes y el personal estén operando en condiciones sanitarias. Todos los estudiantes deben estar en línea a través de Google Meet a las 8:30 a. m. para comenzar su instrucción. Se enviará a casa un paquete de instrucción para que su estudiante lo complete. Así es como determinaremos la asistencia del día. Si su estudiante no tiene acceso a la tecnología, comuníquese con el maestro de su estudiante o con el líder escolar por correo electrónico. Manténgase conectado con todos nuestros medios, incluido el sitio web www.NWILCS.org, y las plataformas de redes sociales para obtener la información más actualizada.

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
