Please note that the Counseling Office will be closed for Winter Break.  Counselors will not be available via phone or email so they can enjoy a well-deserved break to spend time with family and friends.  Schedules will be visible on Infinite Campus on the evening of January 11th. Any questions or concerns regarding schedules can be addressed when we return. Counselors will not be able to take or answer schedule requests via email or phone call during the break.
