All BC students are able to set up an individual session with Mrs. Miller either via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by stopping in to the Counseling office to set up a meeting time. Once an initial meeting is held it will then be determined if further check-ins will be needed. Depending on the situation parents will be contacted. Some students just need to vent really quick and then they’re good to go right back to class. If there is ever a more serious situation parents will be contacted.
With parent approval weekly sessions and/or quick check-ins will be provided to students. During that time, we can review academics or discuss any issues that the student is having.
