The safety and social/emotional welfare of our students is our top priority. Students or parents who believe or suspect that a student is in need of social or emotional support should seek professional assistance either through one of our professional school counselors or a professional mental health counselor.
For emergencies or immediate attention please call 9-1-1 or go directly to a hospital.
