Discipline Procedures

  • Summer School is a time for intense study; however on occasion it becomes necessary to enforce the District's discipline policy. The Lower Merion School District Summer School follows the Lower Merion School District discipline code to the extent appropriate for summer school with the follow consideration:
  • Level 1 infractions that would otherwise have resulted in a school detention will result in a warning. A second Level 1 offense by the same student during summer school will be considered a continuation of unmodified Level 1 behavior and will be treated as a Level 2 offense.
  • Copies of the Lower Merion School District Policy 235 Students Rights and Responsibilities are available in the Summer School office.
  • Please note that any infraction that would otherwise result in an Out of School Suspension will still result in Out of School Suspension. Suspensions of any duration count towards days absent.
  • Serious infractions that would result in a multiple day Out of School Suspension may extend to the regular school year and involve police contact.
  • For the purposes of recording disciplinary infractions, Summer School will be considered part of the 2021-2022 school year.
  • Because students will have the opportunity to ride a shuttle bus, students need to know that violating the rules of LMSD will result in the revocation of the student’s privilege to ride the shuttle bus.
  • Additionally, to those students who park at HHS or in the surrounding neighborhood, unsafe driving practices could result in disciplinary action.
  • Summer School rules and guidelines apply to all students seeking to attend the Lower Merion School District Summer School program.
