Middle School Counseling


Welcome to our new Middle School Counseling website. We will strive to provide you with a variety of resources as well as offer tips to help you cope during this unusual time. Check out our menu up at the top of this page. This site will be fluid so come back often to check out updates.

Remember, we are here for you! We will continue to support you throughout our distance learning adventure. Below you will find a list of our schools along with your School Counselor and their email address. Please reach out to us for questions or concerns. Allow a return time for up to 24 hours for contact during weekdays and on weekends expect us to get back to you on the closest school day.

If you are experiencing a mental health emergency dial 911 or call 24-HOUR PSYCHIATRIC EMERGENCY SERVICES (CRISIS SERVICES): (530) 673-8255 or Toll Free (888) 923-3800.
