Las Cruces Public Schools assumes no responsibility for your child at that point. Please expect delays as it takes time to call each child out of class individually or in small groups.

Dear LCPS families, This time of year, the weather can complicate our school day without much notice. Lightning strikes are a very real threat to student safety, and our protocols can sometimes make it inconvenient for families when a school must shelter in place because of weather, especially at the end of the school day. Unfortunately, we have previously experienced a lightning strike on campus that injured a student, and we do not want that to happen again. In order to ensure the safety of all students, LCPS has adopted the following safety protocols in the event of inclement weather. The district has purchased a weather application called Weather Sentry available for download by school administrators and coaches. This is the official weather monitoring system to be used to monitor weather districtwide. If lightning is detected within a 10-mile radius, a school will activate a shelter in place. The district is currently reviewing this portion of our lightning protocol. A return to normal activity can only be made once the weather system has clearly passed from the area and no lightning strikes within 10 miles have occurred with 30 minutes. The administrator responsible for the accurate monitoring of the weather app will make the decision to seek shelter. Lightning is a very unpredictable event and is quite capable of striking anywhere and at any time throughout an active cell. Failure to follow these protocols could result in catastrophic consequences. Visitors to school campuses may be sheltered in place in a school cafeteria or gym. If you need to pick up your child while a school is sheltering in place due to weather, you may do so at your own risk. Las Cruces Public Schools assumes no responsibility for your child at that point. Please expect delays as it takes time to call each child out of class individually or in small groups.
