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.

We are looking forward to welcoming students back to campus on Tuesday, January 19th for in-person learning and the shift to our e-Hybrid learning model. Please take a moment to read and consider the attached information, in preparation for Tuesday.


  • Tuesday, January 19th - e-Hybrid Begins - Special Week - MLK Day (BW/Color)
    • All LFHS students and staff will shift to the second semester e-Hybrid schedule on Tuesday, January 19th. Students learning in-person and remotely will all follow the same schedule.
    • All grade levels return to LFHS, as alphabetically assigned, in the e-Hybrid model.

For full weeks following the return to in-person learning on January 19th, the e-Hybrid Schedule will be followed (BW/Color)


As mentioned in the Superintendent's message, students/families choosing to learn in-person in our e-Hybrid model and participating in all in-person extracurricular activities are agreeing to the following:
