  • In delivering a comprehensive school counseling program, school counselors perform different roles including participating in professional learning community meetings, district level meetings, and classroom presentations which require the counselors to be out of the office. To better serve our families, parent appointment times will be scheduled before or after school or at the discretion of the counselor based on availability.  
  • In case of emergencies or crises, counselors will meet as necessary.

  • Please contact your student counselor to schedule an appointment.
