Hello Lower Moreland Families,

Thank you,

Mr. William J. Miles, Principal

3 hour delay on Friday 9/16/22

On this day, regular buses will run for students in grades 9, 10, and 11, just three hours later than usual. For example, if the regular bus arrives at 6:50am, it will arrive at 9:50am on September 16th only for this special schedule. The 3 hour delay schedule is for Senior activities.

Traffic Patterns-Reminder

As you know from the recent construction project on the high school campus, the access road from Red Lion Road to the school campus was reoriented in preparation for the building of a new high school. With that reorientation comes new traffic patterns for which we need to be aware and make necessary adjustments. I understand that it may take additional time to navigate the areas around the school campus, but it is essential that we all follow safe driving practices. For the safety of our students, and to ease the traffic on the high school campus, I ask parents/guardians to follow these procedures:

Morning drop-off and Afternoon pick-up

  • Enter the school campus using the Red Lion Road access road and turn right into the pick-up/drop-off loop.
  • Please follow all signs and proceed across the front of the building to door 5 to drop off your student(s). Please do not stop in front of the Main Entrance.
  • Please do NOT drop-off or pick-up a student in the front parking lot area.
  • Please do NOT drop-off or pick up a student in the large main parking lot where staff and student drivers park as that could create a potentially dangerous situation.
  • Please do not drop-off or pick-up a student in or near the bus loop.
  • Administrators and/or a police officer are present to help direct vehicles, so please follow their instructions.
  • Leave plenty of time to safely navigate the school campus.

Music Department

On Friday, September 9th, the music department had a special visit from University of South Florida music students. The students are part of the electronic iPad band, Touch, and performed an interactive concert. LM students had a chance to play with the band, learn about technology in music, and listen to original and cover songs. This high-energy presentation was the perfect way to start the school year with some musical inspiration!

General News and Announcements

Attendance Protocol

All of your attendance reporting needs will be handled by one electronic form that will replace the Blue Card online form and the Yellow Card online form (used at Pine Road). This will also replace the need for a phone call to the attendance line.

  • Use this form to report your child’s absence. Submitting this form will both report the absence and document it. No follow up Blue card is needed.

  • Submit this form to sign your child into school late.

  • Submit this form to sign your child out for an appointment (early dismissal). This form allows you to enter a return to school time if your child will be returning to school.

Please Note:

If you are taking an extended vacation, you will still need to complete the Request for Excusal from Regular School Attendance, familiar to most families as a vacation request form. The form is found on the Virtual Backpack under Forms.

Doctors’ notes still need to be submitted to the school attendance secretary or sent into school.

Late Arrival/Early Release

We are doing the late arrival/early release program for this school year again. For more information on the requirements and expectations of this privilege, please see the link to the application. A student cannot begin the late arrival or early dismissal until the application is approved by Mr. Miles.

Resources for Parents and Guardians

Anti-Bullying FAQ

We wanted to provide some information to families following our LMTSD Parent/Guardian Bullying Prevention Information survey. Below are some answers to some Frequently Asked Questions and information related to district procedures.

Are you aware of the anonymous reporting system being used in Pennsylvania, Safe2Say Something?

Safe2Say Something is a statewide anonymous, 24-7, reporting process for a variety of safety concerns. Click HERE for more information on this initiative.

Are you aware of the Lower Moreland Township School District Harassment/Bullying Reporting Form?

This form is used to gather information about incidents related to bullying. Students, parents, teachers, and administrators can all use this form. This form can be found on each school’s website. Click HERE to view the form.

As a parent, I have a clear understanding of the school's policies, practices, and procedures related to issues of harassment and bullying.

All reported incidents related to bullying are investigated, regardless of how they are reported. The District Code of Conduct is the structure used to apply consequences. Cases are referred to the police if the nature of the incident requires it.

We continue to partner with students, staff, and families to provide a safe environment for all students.

Bullying Prevention

Lower Moreland Township School District is committed to preventing all forms of bullying, cyberbullying, and harassment. For more information please see the district web site: https://www.lmtsd.org/Page/13723 In addition, please know that at the High School, bullying and harassment forms are available in the main office as well as the guidance office.
