    How is a Student Referred to the School Counselor?
     
    Students may be referred to the counselor by parents, teachers, administrators, or peers; or they may self-refer.
     
    Students may stop by the counseling offices between classes and complete referral/request forms.  Students may leave the form with the counselor or slide it under the office door if the counselor is unavailable.
     
     
    Emergency Referral Process
     
    A teacher or principal may send the student directly to the counseling office with a completed referral from briefly defining the emergency.  In the event the counselors are unavailable, the student should report to the main office so the concern may be addressed immediately.
     
    Should an extreme circumstance or emergency occur between classes, a student may report directly to the counseling office or the main office.
