Meet the Staff

Grade Level Guidance

The counseling office has an "Open Door" policy for students. The best time to connect with your counselor is before and after school and during brunch and lunch. If your counselor is unavailable, complete a request to see your counselor, available at the counseling secretaries desk.

Parents and students can also contact their counselor through email or by phone, however, email is the most efficient form of contact.  It is recommended to contact your student's teacher(s) with questions and concerns, related to their class before contacting the counselor, as the teacher knows their curriculum and classroom environment best.
