Confidentiality Policy:

What you say in the counseling office stays in the counseling office UNLESS…

  • Someone is hurting you
  • You want to hurt someone else
  • You want to hurt yourself
  • You give the counselor permission to tell a parent or another trusted adult in your world. 

The school counselor is here to help you. Sometimes the best way to help is to get other people involved who can assist. If you are struggling, telling someone what is going on is a brave and courageous step. Let the school counselors help get you started on a new pathway.
