Larkspur-Corte Madera School District
Dear LCMSD Community,
Our top priority is to keep students and staff safe. It is important for you to know that we, LCMSD, Central Marin Police Authority (CMPA), and Central Marin Fire Department (CMFD) have a strong partnership and work regularly with one another to keep our schools and community safe. Due to these clear lines of communication, we are continually revisiting procedures and implementing the practices recommended by first responders.
Over the years, CMPA and CMFD have supported and trained LCMSD staff through tabletop exercises, active shooter trainings, school resource officer visits, and most recently, a CMPA workshop on de-escalation strategies. CMPA and CMFD have keys to all school sites, access to live cameras on campuses, and direct phone numbers of our administrators.
This partnership and ongoing safety efforts were an essential component of our application and award of the School Violence Prevention Grant, which will allow us to expand our trainings and further our school-first responder collaboration. Stay tuned for a formal press release.
Please review the important information below. Thank you for your support in helping us maintain safe schools.

Questions to Ask Before a Playdate
Safety is important to all of us, and might have been a driving factor in your decision to raise your children in Marin. Even though we live in a safe community, it is important for us to ask some simple questions (from this article) before our children go on a playdate.
Alert Marin / Nixle
If you have not already done so, sign up for Alert Marin today to receive incident specific information or potentially life-saving instruction to a precise geographic location. Alert Marin only initiates contact if action is needed where you are such as evacuation or shelter in place. You can sign up for Nixle in any zip code (by texting your zip code to 888-777) for updates on road closures, police active and general public safety information.
