School Counseling

Greetings, YKES Students and Families.

We recognize and understand the impact COVID-19 continues to have. Every part of life has changed, presenting significant challenges to our daily lives and routines. Due to these challenges, your School Counselors have put together a Resource List if you are in need of assistance. You can find the resource list below.

PWCS school counselors recognize that students and parents or guardians have a right to know the limits of confidentiality. Please click here to see PWCS Regulation 651-2 regarding information on the confidentiality of student-disclosed information.

Your PWCS school counselor will discuss with you how the email or Zoom platform you are using for academic advising or parent/student consultation works, as well as some best practices for using the platform.

Emergency Resources:

PWCS cares deeply about students' emotional well-being during their time away from school. If a student is in need of emotional support during this time, please feel free to send an email to [email protected]. A school mental health or health professional will answer and offer virtual support to students to the best of their ability. This email is not to be used for emergency situations as it will not be monitored 24 hours a day. If a student is ever in an emergency situation he/she is encouraged to call 911 or utilize one of the resources listed below:
