A Special Statement from your school counselors

Mrs. Fasana, Mrs. Alders and PWCS care deeply about all students' emotional well-being during this trying time away from our school building.  School counselors can respond to emails or can consult w/ parent and student via phone or video chat.  Parent's must be included in all video or phone chats.  These chats can be arranged via email.  Please contact Mrs. Fasana at fasanaca@pwcs.edu if you wish to set-up a consult and Mrs. Fasana or Ms. Alders will schedule a time to consult and refer to resources.

During the school day, Mrs. Fasana and Ms. Alders will be periodically monitoring email--we will not be having virtual office hours.  Emails are also checked one time daily on the weekends.  We will make every effort to respond to your emails in a timely manner usually within the day that they are received.  However, emails after 4 PM may not be answered until the next school day.

We will not be meeting with students in groups (virtually or in person) for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.

Email shouldn't be used as an emergency situation as this email isn't monitored 24hrs a day.  If you are experiencing a mental health emergency please call 911, if you need mental health support one of the community resources listed below:
