While school is closed to students, parents, and staff during the COVID-19 outbreak, students and parents will have email access to counselors and social workers during the day. Students with social work minutes in their IEPs or 504s have electronically received resources they can utilize to remain mentally and physically healthy during this time.

School Counselors provide many resources for students. These tools include individual academic planning, student guidance counseling, consultation for educators, and career, social, and emotional development. School counselor caseloads are divided by alphabet by last name and special population.
Students can access their counselor by stopping by the Counseling Office to make an appointment. The student's counselor will send a pass for the student as soon as possible.
School Social Workers are trained mental health professionals with a degree in social work who provide services related to a person's social, emotional, and life adjustment to school and/or society. School Social Workers are the link between the home, school, and community in providing direct, as well as indirect, services to students, families, and school personnel to promote and support students' academic and social success.
School Social Workers directly provide individual and group counseling, classroom lessons, conflict resolution, and crisis intervention to students. All students can access social work services by completing a form located in the counseling office.
