FROM Lebanon Schools Police Department (LSPD)
As the school year starts we as parents and community members need to reaffirm the need to instruct our children about the dangers of strangers. The definition of a stranger is someone the child has never met before and their parents have not introduced them to. Tips for parents and students:
• Never talk to anyone that you have not been introduced to before.
• Never approach a car, truck, van or vehicle that you don't know who is driving or who are the passengers.
• Never accept anything (gifts, candy, toys, etc.) from a stranger.
• Never go with a stranger if they ask for help.
• If you are approached, yell "NO", run away and tell a trusted adult (parent, teacher, police officer, or family adult friend or family member).
• Parents should report the incident to the local police/sheriff department dispatch at 482-1412 or contact the Lebanon School Police Department at 765-482-0380.

Annual Identification for High Ability Services
Each year LCSC teachers and parents nominate students for possible inclusion in the High Ability Program. The High Ability Program offers services to students who exhibit a need for more advanced curriculum and/or faster paced instruction. To qualify for services, students should have test scores in the top 7% of the nation. Students are expected to score in the 93rd percentile and above in reading and/or math as well as have an OLSAT score that places them among top students.
Parents who would like to nominate their children for screening should complete the KOI Parent Nomination Form which can be found on the LCSC website. The form should be returned along with work samples to Kari Ottinger at the LCSC Administration Center no later than December 13, 2013.
The screening process takes place between December 15 and the end of March. Parents will be notified of the committee’s decision near the end of the school year. If parents do not agree with the committee decision, they may submit a request for an appeal.
Keep in mind that teachers strive to differentiate the curriculum for all students whether or not they are identified for High Ability services.
