A Time of Uncertainty
During this time, we understand that the needs of our students and parents/guardians will be fluid. We will be updating this website weekly with different things that can help you cope throughout this situation. We are hoping to hear from our parents/guardians and students about what information you feel you need us to provide to you during this time. Please don't hesitate to email your counselor directly and we will get back to you within 24 hours, during regular school hours Monday-Friday.
Please note that in the case of a mental health emergency, the best way to receive supports immediately is to contact local emergency services.
If you or someone you know is at immediate and serious risk of harming themselves or someone else, call 911.
