Lower/Middle School Distance Counseling Resources
All counselors will remain available during regular school hours to students, parents, and faculty via email and phone to address mental health needs as they arise and ongoing concerns related to emotional well-being. Given the remote nature of these communications, counselors will only be able to intervene in non-crisis issues and will be unable to assess for risk or safety. Students and parents needing additional support will be referred to community services for further assessment and resources.
If you are in crisis, please call 911 and/or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8355), and proceed to your nearest hospital as appropriate.
Please feel free to reach out to the counselors with any questions or concerns and they will respond within 24 hours.
