Our school counselors are vital members of our educational team.
They help all students in the areas of academic achievement,
career and social/emotional development, ensuring today’s
students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow.
HOW TO SCHEDULE A MEETING WITH A COUNSELOR:
PARENTS / GUARDIANS-
Email or call your student’s counselor to set up appointment.
Student meetings are given priority.
Please schedule a meeting. Counselors may not be able to
accommodate drop-in visits from parents.
For crisis situations, students can ask to see
a counselor throughout the school day without a pass.
Students may see their counselor at lunch, after school, or
during their elective with teacher permission.
During the school holidays and breaks, counselors do not check
their email regularly.
A NOTE ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY-
By law, most of what students share with their counselor is
protected by confidentiality. Below are examples of
information that is NOT confidential.
~Harm to self
~Harm to others (threats to others safety)
~Others harming students (neglect, physical or sexual abuse or
~Violations on school property (stealing, distributing
drugs/weapons, harm to school property/vandalism, etc.)
If you are ever unsure about what is considered confidential,
please ask your counselor to review the limits of confidentiality
and answer any questions you have. As counselors,
the ultimate goal is to provide a safe and welcoming
environment for students to share, while at the same time,
ensuring both student and school safety.
We are operating in uncharted territory right now and many things
are still unknown. Your SCUSD Student Support & Health Services
Department wants you to know that your feelings are valid, no
matter what they are.
You might feel scared, confused, overwhelmed, angry, alone,
grateful, or completely calm. You might feel many things
throughout the days or all at once, like being upset that an
event was cancelled, but happy that you can wear pajamas all day.
