Liberty Counseling Office
Contact a School Counselor
Due to the CCSD response to COVID-19, the Liberty Middle School Counseling Department will be operating remotely. School counselors will be checking their voicemails periodically but email is the best way to communicate with your school counselor during this time. If a phone conversation or virtual meeting is needed, your school counselor will work with you to determine a date, time and agreed upon method of communication.

Remote School Counseling Considerations
We are here to support our students and community members during this challenging time. Online platforms provide many benefits including flexibility, efficiency and unique collaboration opportunities. However, there are some limitations involved that are described below:
- Confidentiality & Privacy cannot be guaranteed with services provided through online platforms (ex: Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Voice, etc.).
- In the event that a student, parent and/or school counselor believes that the virtual meeting is not private or other participants not anticipated are observed, the meeting will be rescheduled for another time.
- Technical Issues may arise.
- In the event of technological failure during a meeting, the school counselor will make attempts to reconnect for ten minutes. If the internet or technological failure cannot be resolved, the school counselor will call you back via the telephone.
- If the technological failure interferes with the goals of the meeting being achieved, another meeting will be scheduled at a mutually convenient date and time.
