Hello Titan Families,
The Lorain City Schools believe that open communication is key in maintaining safe learning environments. To that end, we wanted to share this important message with you to answer some questions you may have as we get closer to the start of school.
This pertains to firearms in our schools and on district property.
Lorain City Schools will not allow teachers and staff to carry firearms on district property.
With Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signing Ohio House Bill 99, which establishes policies to allow school districts the option to arm teachers and staff, the Lorain Board of Education passed a resolution on June 27 in opposition to arming Lorain City School District employees.
Only trained law enforcement officers will be allowed to carry firearms on school property.
Lorain Schools continues to have a very strong relationship with the Lorain Police Department. Our Director of Safety and Security Reuben Figueroa and School Resource Officer Miguel Baez are sworn members of law enforcement. Both have a strong, daily presence in our buildings and work with Lorain Police to keep our students and staff safe.

Thank you for being our valued partner in keeping our schools and community safe. We look forward to welcoming all new and returning Titans to our buildings on August 17 for what is sure to be an amazing new school year!
Thank you, and enjoy the rest of your summer.
