Community & Guidance Ops:
· From your counselors: Sometimes it’s just not possible to sort through tough times alone. Problems can build up and you may lose sleep or find it hard to concentrate on your school work. When you need to talk to someone, your school counselor can be a great place to start.
School counselors are trained to take your problem seriously, listen, and help — it doesn’t have to be just about school stuff. A counselor can help you deal with the sadness of when someone has died as well as advise you on taking the right classes to get into your dream college.
Please remember to first check in with your teacher before going to the school counseling office if you are having an emergency. If you would like to have a meeting about a non-urgent matter, email your school counselor to set up a time that works for both of you. Know that you always have a safe place to talk, draw, or just have someone sit quietly near you while you process on your own.
