When students wish to see a school counselor, they will need to complete a request form in the counseling office, send an email, or ask their teacher for a pass. Students will be called to the counseling office during the school day for assistance. Sometimes school counselors are not immediately available to see students. School counselors often are in the classroom teaching educational and career lessons.
Please call or email with any questions or concerns.

Schools confront issues of grief and loss every day: 1 in 15 US children* will experience the death of a parent or sibling by age 18. Studies show that unresolved grief can have a social and emotional impact on children, leading to behavioral issues and poor performance in school. Yet educators often feel under-prepared to lend support to their students, with the vast majority of teachers reporting they have not received any bereavement training.
The Grief-Sensitive Schools Initiative – a pioneering effort that utilizes New York Life’s workforce to help equip local schools to care for the grieving students in their midst – is an extension of the work of the Coalition to Support Grieving Students, a collaboration among leading K-12 professional organizations, to develop and deliver best-in-class grief support resources to educators.
