Safety & Wellness
Los Alamos Public Schools ask that families discuss safety issues. Take the time to talk about the idea of “See Something, Say Something.” Students are the ones most likely to first become aware of a possible problem in their school. But knowing a problem doesn’t do any good unless you tell someone who’s in position to do something about it. Remember, reporting a concern is very different from gossiping or “snitching”. Reporting what you see may save a life, while just talking with your friends about what you’ve seen won’t help anything.
What you can do
- If you see someone in your school who isn’t usually there, or who is acting in a way that makes you uncomfortable, tell someone.
- If you see someone being bullied, tell someone.
- If you see or hear of “hate speech” or threats being posted online, tell someone.
- If there are problems in the parking lot, tell someone.
- If you hear that someone has brought, or plans to bring, a weapon to school, tell someone.
- If you see or hear that a student is talking about harming others or him/herself, tell someone.
- If you see or hear anything that concerns you, tell someone.

LAPS is promoting Bus Safety. Know the rules. A red flashing light with the extended stop arm means traffic is required to stop, even in both directions of a two-lane road. Stop for the School Bus. It’s the law.
LAPS uses the School Messenger system to notify parents about issues that impact the safety and academic performance of students. Make sure your information is up-to-date so that you continue to receive these important notifications.
