LMSD Reporting Form & Safe2Say
The Lower Merion School District strives to create a community where every student, parent/guardian, and staff member feels valued and safe. Concerns or conduct that violate community expectations - including, but not limited to, behavior that may cause experiences of feeling discriminated against, harassed, and/or bullied - may be reported in a variety of ways.
We encourage attempts to address issues with the individual(s) directly involved, particularly if the matter involves an employee of the District. This contact could be made via email or phone. If the matter involves another student, your student’s teacher or counselor may be a good starting point. They can be reached by email or phone.
We understand that sometimes you may not be comfortable taking that first step. And sometimes, you may not be able to resolve the matter at that level. If that’s the case, you may report directly to a school administrator, such as a principal or assistant principal, by email, phone or by completing the form below (also referred to as the “LMSD Reporting Form”). This form will be routed to the school’s administrative team as well as the District’s Office of Equity and Compliance.
If you have a concern that you would like to report directly to the Office of Equity and Compliance, please contact 610-645-1928 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
LMSD also participates in Pennsylvania’s Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to “say something” BEFORE it is too late.
With Safe2Say Something, it’s easy and confidential to report safety concerns to help prevent violence and tragedies.
Here’s how it works:
- Submit an anonymous tip report through the Safe2SaySomething system
- Crisis center reviews, assesses and processes all submissions
- Crisis center sends all submissions to school administration and/or law enforcement for intervention
- If needed, crisis center may contact tipster anonymously through the app
