Safety Tips From the Lincolnshire Police Department
Keep your personal belongings with you at all times. If you walk away from your lunch table, bring your school bag with you or at the very least, bring your valuables with you. During P.E., lock your belongings up in the provided lockers. If your bag does not fit in the locker, remove your valuables and simply lock them up in the locker. If there are other circumstances that do not allow you to lock up your belongings, talk to the locker room attendant or your P.E. teacher.
Do your part in helping to prevent valuables from being stolen from your vehicle. Keep valuable items such as iPods, GPS units, purses, wallets, radar detectors, etc. out of plain sight in your vehicle.
If someone offers to sell you an item at school, do not buy the item. There is a possibility the item may be stolen and you could then be in possession of stolen property.
Do not give out personal information such as passwords to other students. Also, be cautious giving out too much personal information on social networking sites such as Facebook.
Do not agree to meet people you do not know from the Internet.
If you see a crime or are a victim of a crime, report the incident. Incidents can be reported to any adult staff member at the school.
FAQ From Lincolnshire Police

All parties present:
Exchange information and notify outside parking lot security. If you would like a police report, security can assist you in notifying the police.
Unoccupied vehicle, owner unknown:
Outside security can assist in finding the vehicle’s owner. Even if the accident seems minor and you believe there is no damage, report the incident to outside security and/or the police. Failure to do so may result in an arrest citation for hit and run.

What is cyber bullying and how can I prevent it from happening to me?
Cyber bullying is verbal harassment that occurs during online activities. Cyber bullying can take many forms. These are a few:
• Threatening email
• Nasty instant messaging session
• Repeated text messages sent to the cell phone
• A website set up to mock others
• Using someone’s screen name and pretending to be him/her
• Forwarding private messages, pictures, or video to others
Ways to avoid cyber bullying:
• Don’t give out private information such as passwords, pins, name, address, phone number, school name, or family and friends’ names. Bullies and other harmful people on the Internet can use this information. Don’t reveal your password to your friends, they might reveal it or use in against you in an argument.
• Don’t exchange pictures or give out e-mail addresses to people you meet on the Internet. Ask permission from parents when it is necessary to give such information.
• Don’t send a message when you are angry – it’s hard to undo things that are said in anger.
• Delete messages from people you don’t know, or those from people who seem angry or mean.
• When something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t. Get out of the site, chat, etc.
• Realize that online conversations are not private. Others can copy, print, and share what you say or any pictures you send. Be careful!
