Please remember 

Counseling sessions are confidential, with these exceptions: (1) If a student expresses intent to harm self or others; (2) If there is suspicion of abuse or neglect; or (3) If a court subpoena is issued.

If it is determined that more extensive services are necessary, the responsibility will lie with the parent/guardian to seek outside services. The school will not be liable for these services. Referrals will be discussed with parents/guardians as needed.
