Hello Old Bridge Dolphins!  We miss you so much. We are still available by email and visiting Zoom class meetings as we continue this journey together. 

Counseling Services:

We care deeply about students’ emotional well-being during their time away from school. 
We have been directed by the county, however, that we are not able to conduct mental health counseling for the remainder of the school year.  We ARE available for consultation with parents to provide resources.  We are also available to set up Zoom video conferencing with a student and a parent together to discuss these resources.  Please reach out to us with any concerns :)

The following information is directly from PWCS:
Counselors are NOT providing virtual mental health counseling during school closures; counselors are ONLY providing consultation and connecting students/parents to external resources. Parents or parents WITH their child(ren) can schedule a video conference with counselors who may have questions or concerns about resources and recommendations to assist their child(ren) with anxiety and other issues. Please be sure the parent understands this is not family counseling or individual counseling for their child(ren). This is consultation.

  If a student is ever in an emergency situation he/she is encouraged to call 911 or utilize one of the resources listed below:
