Counselors' message

We want you to know that we are here for you! Please feel free to reach out to us using the emails and phone numbers listed below. We are still offering support in academic, mental health, and personal matters. The WHS Counselors will also be developing videos and at-home enrichment activities related to college and career topics that you can do to help pass time (once you settle into this new routine!) This is a challenging time for many as we all try to adjust to a new school routine. Please remember to check our counseling website frequently for new information, activities and resources. www.wasatchhighcounseling.com

Take a deep breath, it will be ok!
