New Counseling Protocol in Response to COVID-19

Our main goal is to maintain the health, safety, and well being of our employees, students and their families during this unpredictable time as we take appropriate precautionary and preventive measures to limit the potentially harmful risks associated with COVID-19. 

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation locally and abroad, and as of August 17, 2020 we are reopening the office per the phased state regulations and under the direction of the current CDC guidelines. As we reopen, there are a few new office protocols to maintain the safety and health of our students and employees while minimizing the risk of exposure to COVID-19. 

Please take note of the changes: 

  • As per the state and school mandate, all individuals will be required to wear a protective mask while in the counseling foyer and offices. 

  • No waiting rooms are allowed at this time so the counseling door will remain locked until your appointment time to avoid crowds in the foyer, as well as allow counseling offices to keep doors open for additional air-flow.  

  • All schedule change requests must be made via email with your counselor. 

  • Parent and visitor requests for meetings will occur virtually. We highly encourage students, parents and employees to meet with their counselor virtually whenever possible. 

  • Students, if you would like to schedule an in-office counseling session, please email your counselor to schedule an appointment.

For urgent matters that cannot wait (i.e. harm to self, harm to others, bullying/cyberbullying), please call your counselor so that she may allow entrance into the office:
Bethany Salter (A-G): 336-6029,
Jessica Koltz (H-Q): 336-6097,
Cathy McClintock (R-Z): 336-6027,
Lauren.McBride (College): 237-2878,
