We are VERY excited to be starting off the 2021-2022 school year in person! Whether you have opted to come to campus or to continue via virtual learning, your counselors are here for you! Please see the list of counselors below. To email your counselor, simply click on his/her name. If you need to meet with your counselor, please click on the Electronic Request to See Counselor link under your counselor's name. You can also put in a paper request in your 2nd period class- but the electronic request tends to be much faster! Once you have submitted your electronic request, please allow up to 48 hours for your counselor to reach out to you. The beginning of the year is pretty hectic but we will try to get you taken care of ASAP!
If a student is in immediate danger/crisis, please contact the front office during regular hours at 661-324-9841. If it is after hours, please contact law enforcement or crisis services. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255. The local Crisis Hotline is 1-800-991-5272.
We have also created grade level specific Canvas Counseling Classrooms with all sorts of great information to help prepare for academics, careers, college, self-care, etc. Look for our link on your Canvas dashboard!
And as always- be safe and be kind!
