Counselor's Corner

Mrs. Essex

Meet The Counselor:

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, my name is Sarah Essex and I am thrilled to be joining the Oregon Trail family as the School Counselor.

As a School Counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, personal, and social development of all students. I look forward to offering support to the students, staff, families and community. I will be meeting with students individually and in small groups, conducting classroom lessons, meeting with parents, collaborating with teachers and staff, and consulting with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all Oregon Trail students and families.

Any student can request to meet with me or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator, or parent. I encourage you to reach out regarding your child. If you would like for me to meet with your child please do not hesitate to contact me.

I am here to help students achieve their personal/social and academic goals, as well as provide support for the parents and teachers. I can be reached by email at or 913.780.1234

Warm Regards,

Sarah Essex
