LEBANON, Pa. — Northern Lebanon School District students are required to smile while walking the hallways between classes, while bullying incidents are being ignored by administrators, according to a student in the district and her parent.

Students who don’t have a smile on their face while in hallways between classes are allegedly told to either smile or see a guidance counselor to discuss their problems.

Fifteen-year-old Julianna Gundrum, a student at the school district, said students who didn’t smile faced the consequences. Her mother, Jean Gundrum, has since pulled her from the school and enrolled her in the district’s cyber school program.

Both also say Assistant High School Principal Benjamin Wenger and fellow administrators don't care enough about the bullying and harassment taking place in the school district, where Jean Gundrum said her 14-year-old daughter, Adreanna, experienced abuse.

Superintendent Erik Bentzel said any bullying incident reported in the school district is taken seriously.

"We fully investigate every report of bullying," he said. "But, we can't tell (both sets of parents) about the consequences — I can't talk to (a parent) about another (parent's) child."

State law required schools to adopt an anti-bullying policy by Jan. 1, 2009, which states that in cases of verified bullying a "building principal or his/her designee will inform the parents or guardians of the victim and also the parents or guardians of the accused."
