Securly Parent Portal:  Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) works tirelessly to ensure students are as safe as possible when using school-issued devices and accessing the internet. This school year, after having a successful field test at several schools, VBCPS will offer parents an option to monitor how their children are using their school-issued devices with a program called Securly Parent Portal. Securly Parent Portal was designed to help keep students safe by allowing parents to monitor their online activity.  Toward the end of September, you will receive more information from the school division as well as an email from Securly.com providing instructions on how to sign up for or opt out of weekly emails that include a preview of your child’s online activity.

Social Media:  We have an important message about school safety and the use of social media. Police and school administrators want to remind you that making a threat against our school, online or in person, can result in criminal charges and expulsion from school. Even if you post the message as a joke, police and prosecutors will take it seriously. School safety is everyone’s responsibility. If you see or hear something that concerns you, report it to a teacher, administrator or police right away. Remember to Be Social. Be Smart. Be Safe.

Being Absent:  When our Dolphins are absent or late for school, they are missed.  We understand that absences and tardies to school happen and are often unavoidable.  At LES we require parents to provide absent and tardy notes when a child misses school.  If your Dolphin misses school, you can report the absent in the following ways:

  • A handwritten note to your child’s teacher

  • A phone call to Ms. Vollmer in the main office (648-2880)

  • An email to Ms. Vollmer ([email protected]) explaining the reason for the absence

Dolphins who have excessive absences or tardies will be referred to the school’s social worker for further investigation and intervention.
