Thanks all,
But I found a relatively easy solution to my squidguard setup problem.
This could be obvious, or maybe it could help someone else:

The problem: I was trying to default the students browsers to my
separate squidguard machine and have teachers user accounts not
filtered.   To clarify, I have 3 separate machines for LTSP, squiduard
(with 2 nics, I think this might be required) and gateway/firewall. 
All I did was 1. make the default gateway of LTSP point to the
squidguard machine.  This makes browsers use the proxy without any
fiddling.  2. I setup plain old squid on my gateway/firewall
(  3. I manually configured browsers in the teachers
accounts to the squid/gateway/firewall machine ( 
Since we only have maybe 10 teachers this wasn't a huge task. This
seems to work pretty well.  Hope that helps someone.
