    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 (you can visit Mrs. Kerrigan’s website here to find resources for both parents and students)
    Grades 6-8: Michael Binder (Mr. Binder’s website)
    Grades 9-12: Katie Brown (Mrs. Brown’s website here)

    If you have witnessed or been the victim of bullying or cyberbullying of any kind, please reach out to a teacher/administrator, or one of our social workers above.

    If you are concerned that someone under the age of 18 is being abused, call the Child Protection Hotline, 855-4LA-KIDS (855-452-5437) toll free 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

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

    If your family lives in any of the following conditions:

    • In a shelter
    • In a motel, campground due to a lack of alternative adequate accommodations
    • In a car, a park, abandoned building, or bus or train station
    • Doubled up with other people due to loss of housing or economic hardship
