Moving to Virtual School Counseling

Dear El Cerrito Middle School Families:

We understand this may be a stressful time for our students and their families. In this new setting, the El Cerrito Middle School Counseling team wants to make sure we continue to support students. Under the American School Counseling Association virtual counseling guidelines, it is important that we communicate the expectations and limitations of providing virtual school counseling. School counselors have the responsibility to support all students in academic and social/emotional development that would still emulate school counseling that would take place in a face-to-face environment. Virtual school counseling is a way to reach a diverse student set, to help students meet their potential and have an impact on their learning in a way they may not receive in a traditional face-to-face school environment. 

With that said, below you will find a list of the emails of our counseling staff and our office hours. Please feel free to reach out to your counselors as needed.

**If you or someone you know is in immediate crisis, then please contact 911**

**Please DO NOT direct message us on our counseling social media pages**
