Safety and Security

Secure entrance

Safety is the No. 1 priority in Lake Orion Community Schools and daily decisions are driven to create the best and safest learning environment.

We ask that all students, staff and visitors help us keep our buildings as safe as possible.

The school district has a three-pronged approach to safety and security, involving staff, law enforcement and families.
