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.

This is the true tale of the tragic collision of a struggling circus and a tiny town in Tennessee, which resulted in the only known lynching of an elephant. Set in September of 1916, the play combines historical fact and legend, exploring the deep-seated American craving for spectacle, violence and revenge. The show will be streamed October 17th at 7 pm!

LFHS students enrolled in AP classes are prepared and encouraged to take the College Board Advanced Placement Exams administered in May. It is important to note that with qualifying AP Exam scores, students can earn college credit, advanced placement, or both at the majority of colleges and universities they attend after high school graduation. The policy regarding issuance of college credit is determined ONLY by the college or university a student attends and will vary among institutions. AP scores are valid even if a student transfers colleges.

The deadline for purchasing AP Exams October 2, 2020. After this date, you will incur a $40 late fee.

The LFHS Library is now offering weekly book pickups and drop offs every Friday from 7:45-8:45 am and 3-4 pm in the LFHS Library. To get a book (or multiple books), you must first place a hold on it in our catalog using the procedure in this quick video. Please make your request by 7:30 am on Friday. We will then email you to confirm it is ready for pick up. You will need to make sure to certify before entering the building. If you have additional questions, please contact Librarian Katie Pausch.

Unable to come into the building? We still have a great selection of ebooks and audiobooks available here by logging into your school Google account. Both the Lake Bluff and Lake Forest public libraries also offer curbside pickup at this time.

In order to best serve our students, we have created a process for students to pick-up classroom items and resources that are essential for supporting learning in their classes. This includes items such as materials, tech equipment, instruments, tools and new supplies. These items must be assigned directly to the student from the classroom teacher. Teachers will communicate directly with students regarding the availability of each item for them to pick-up.

Every Friday  - 7:45am-8:45am & 3:00pm-4:00pm

Location: Lake Forest High School Library

Students and/or Parents Must: Complete the screening process before entering the building
