Counselor to Parent/Guardian Communication


The counseling department is looking forward to the new school year and working alongside you to support and develop our scholars socially and academically.  Communication with parents is vital to the success of our scholars. Below are a few updated policies that will help communication remain clear and consistent.  


  • If you would like to meet with a counselor one-on-one or refer your student to receive counseling services, please email the counselor directly or call the school office to schedule a time.  All counselors have weekly parent office hours (see below).  


  • If you call the office or reach out to a counselor to report a concern that is not an emergency, please give the counselors a 72-hour turnaround time to address the concern and contact you.


  • Counselors will mostly use phone and Parent Square to contact you directly.
