 Frequently Asked Questions

​Counselors may meet with students individually, in small groups or through lessons   presented in class rooms. Students may arrange to consult with their counselor by notifying a teacher, administrator or the counselor directly.​

​Parents are encouraged to communicate directly with their child’s teachers regarding questions or concerns about academic performance. Counselors may support this communication process and consult with parents and teachers about supportive strategies.​

​Counselors are assigned to teams.  View the LSMS Faculty/Staff Directory​.

You can see or talk to your student's counselor by email, phone, or by appointment.  The counselor is available most days from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm from early August through late May.  There are days when the counselor is not available due to previously scheduled appointments.

​A student can fill out a request for the counselor to see him/her.  The student should get a pass from a teacher to fill out the request or come to the guidance office before/after school or during lunch.​

​Two counselors are servicing students at LaSalle Springs Middle School.  Please be patient as we work to get back to you as soon as possible.  If you have an urgent concern, please contact a school administrator.​
