Information from our School Counseling Department

March 23, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We wish you and your family well during this challenging time. Please know that if you need to connect with your child’s School Counselor, one of our SACs, or Case Managers, we are available through email during school hours.

In the event you have a concern about your child/adolescent regarding mental health, self-harm, and/or substance use/abuse, we recommend that you contact your child’s therapist/psychiatrist/counseling program  (if they are working with one) or pediatrician.

Our Counseling staff can also set up an online meeting or conference call to speak with you and/or your child during school hours.

In the event of an emergency, we recommend that you seek immediate attention for your child. The following are some suggestions for facilities that can help you:
