We know this may be a stressful time for students and families as Spring Break plans may have changed and routines are being disrupted. As we prepare for school closures for the time being, the Leander ISD Counseling Services department has compiled a list of resources for families to utilize during this time. Students and adults may also notice an increase in their screen time. It is important to remember to take breaks and be physically active throughout the day.


The RBMS counseling team philosophy is helping guide students to achieve their fullest potential. Our guidance program is designed to provide all students with the tools they need to be successful and ready for high school.
