So much for the Singing Railroad Jamboree Club I was going to start.... Maybe I'm safe because I don't work there?

I would venture to say that you would be fine with this, as there are many different groups using this acronym. I think there issue is more with people who are affiliated with the school, using it. As it does become confusing whether it is a school related site or activity (or use). Otherwise, you should be completely free to use it, as it is only an acronym. LOL is an acronym for Lloyds of London, so when are they going to start their lawsuits. LOL
