Important Scheduling Information:


THE ADD / DROP PERIOD HAS NOW ENDED. NO NEW REQUESTS WILL BE PROCESSED.


Schedules will be live via Home Access Center at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, 8/25. Any student who has a major scheduling issue (defined as a missing content area class or a missing lunch) should contact their school counselor via email. Counselors will try to resolve any and all major scheduling issues prior to the opening of school.

Requests for elective changes will only be considered during the add/drop period, which is from Monday, August 30 —Thursday, September 2. All requests for elective changes must be received by 2:25 PM on 9/2 in order to be considered. Prior to making a request, students are asked to check to see that the course (s) that they are interested in adding is/are being offered at the same time as the course (s) they are looking to drop. Schedules will not be re-arranged to accommodate electives. Here is the list of 2021—22 Elective Offerings.

To be fair to all students, counselors will be reviewing and responding to student inquiries for add/drop in the order in which they are received. For this reason, we ask students to EMAIL their requests. We are unable to process requests that have to do with any of the following: waiver requests, teacher or section changes, changes in academic courses or lunchtimes.

School will be closed Friday, September 3 through Wednesday, September 8. Counselors will not be in the office on these days.

Enjoy a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend, and welcome back!

What is Safe2Say Something?

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 - download the app or call the number above.
-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.

This means we must engage individuals throughout our member community in tough conversations about inequalities, identify the signs of systematic racism, and share proven solutions.


Please know that the Lower Moreland Counseling Department is open and available for all students as a safe space within our school community. If any student is in need of a safe space to talk, please reach out to any of the counselors. We do not have all the answers, but our goal is to let you know that we stand ready to proactively, peacefully, and productively engage with students.
