A student desiring to talk with a counselor can do so during a free period or with permission from their current teacher. Students must have a pass to come to the office. If the counselor is unavailable, the students are encouraged to leave a message and the counselor will call the student down as soon as possible. We encourage parental involvement to facilitate academic success.

If you wish to meet with the counselor to discuss issues which may be affecting your childs education, please call ahead to schedule an appointment and the counselor will arrange a meeting with the team teachers. Students will be assigned a counselor based on the team of teachers with whom the child is involved. The counselor collaborates with the team to best meet the educational needs of the child.
