Report a Safety Concern or Incident


The LFHS Confidential Reporting Tool is an internal reporting system used to inform school officials about threats to the safety and/or security of Lake Forest High School. Students can use the link above, or access the resource on their Chromebooks. Any of the following concerns can be reported:

  • School Violence/Threats
  • Weapons
  • Bullying/Harassment
  • Drug activity
  • Sexting
  • Other issues affecting LFHS students

When a report is received, a School Administrator will evaluate the concern and take action to address the issue. Students are not required to provide their names in order to make a report. Submissions are only monitored during normal school hours. In the event of an emergency after hours, or away from campus, students should call 911 immediately.



On Monday, May 24th, the D115 Board of Education held a special meeting focused on the LFHS Fall 2021-2022 Opening Plan. During the meeting, key areas of focus were highlighted and discussed to ensure that students, families, and staff know what to expect in the fall. There may be some areas that change, due to potential updates to guidance announced over the summer. This plan represents our current direction for the fall. Here are some key highlights from the presentation... please use this link to read the entire communication.

State Mandate - Currently, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) require school districts to mandate face coverings in school and on school district property when physical distancing of 6 feet cannot be maintained. For athletics, IDPH, ISBE, and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) require all participants who can medically tolerate a face covering to wear one at all times, including during competition and other active exercise, regardless of whether the activity is outdoors...please use this link to read the entire communication.
