    Social Workers & Hotlines

    Lusher employs multiple social workers to promote the mental health and well being of students at Lusher.

    Grades K-5: Monique Kerrigan
    Grades 6-8: Michael Binder
    Grades 9-12: Katie Brown (you can visit a website here to find resources for both parents and students).

    If you have witnessed or been the victim of bullying or cyberbullying of any kind, please reach out to a teacher/administrator, one of our social workers above, or make an anonymous call to the Bullying or Cyberbullying Hotline at 504-304-5782.

    Lusher’s faculty and staff are all Mandated Reporters of Child Abuse and Neglect. You can learn more about Mandated Reporters here.
