Safety & Security

In Summer of 2022, A District Safety Task Force was created and began meeting weekly.

The District Safety Task Force is a small committed team representing diverse school safety & security expertise.

The DSTF includes:

  • City & County Law Enforcement

  • Parents

  • Referrals from Board Trustees

  • District Leadership

"Our Why"

The Lake Pend Oreille School District Safety Task Force (DSTF), composed of first responders, parents, and district leadership, is committed to gathering stakeholder feedback, reviewing current district practices, and making recommendations to proactively improve school safety protocols to protect all students and staff.

See Tell Now!

All schools in Lake Pend Oreille School District are now utilizing See, Tell, Now!--a Student Threat Reporting System. The anonymous tip line is staffed by trained technicians who receive and evaluate tips 24/7. The tips are screened for accuracy and severity, then assigned to school points of contact or law enforcement, if applicable. Consider downloading the SeeTellNow app and/or adding 1-888-593-2835 to your contacts.

SEE — When you are in and around our schools simply be aware of your surroundings. You may notice something that doesn’t seem right, looks odd or is out of the ordinary.

TELL — Tell someone at your school or call the police, but tell someone. We want to know what’s happening at our school and your observations are important.

NOW— Do it NOW. Don’t wait, don’t hesitate. If something looks out of place to you, it likely is. Where the safety of our children is concerned it is better safe than sorry. Remember if you see something,

Tell someone, Do it Now — SEE-TELL — NOW!
