Elementary Counselor's Corner

Jessica Rider
Frequently Asked Questions
Q:  Will the counselor tell anyone what we talk about?
A:  In most cases, what is said in the counselor’s office stays in the counselor’s office.  However, when students disclose information that the counselor needs to pass on in order to keep the student or another person safe, then the counselor is required to tell.
 When can I come to the counselor’s office?
  I will be at Neosho Heights Elementary School on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and will be at Service Valley Charter Academy on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  If you need to see me on a day that I’m not on campus, please let a teacher or secretary know and they will call or leave me a note. I’ll check in with you to schedule a time.
