We are pleased to have a professional counselor from Catholic Social Services available for our students at Saint Rose School. A counselor will be at school from 8:30am. to 3:00pm. three days a week. These days will be announced at the beginning of the school year.
Counseling services may include family and group counseling, classroom presentations, and/or individual counseling. The parents, teacher, or Principal may refer a student for counseling. Students may have one session with the counselor without written permission. To continue sessions, a “referral form” must be completed and given to the counselor by the individual making the referral. The counselor must obtain written permission from the student’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s) prior to providing ongoing counseling services. Every effort is made to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of the counseling sessions.
It is important that this service be a team approach: that is, the counselor, parents, and teachers working together for the benefit of the child. Psychologists who are not contracted through the school may not assess or work with a student in the school building without consent of the principal and the appropriate screening.
