We understand that this is a difficult and stressful time and we want to let you know that your school counselors are available to support students should the need arise. School counselors will hold office hours from 9 a.m.  to 3 p.m. each weekday beginning Monday, April 20. 

To speak to a counselor, please email them to set up a phone call. 

Counselors will also be sending out weekly mental health and stress management tips each Monday on the district website.
