Student and Family Support
Dear Lake George Students and Families,
As your LGCSD Counseling Department, we wanted to reach out to provide resources and make sure that you are all aware of available support during this time.
We recognize that this time can be very stressful for families. While we typically encourage face-to-face communication, we are strongly encouraging students and families to rely on technology and reach out to classmates, teachers, and counselors to support one another. Our goal is to help you stay connected and engaged.
We also want you all to know that we are here to support you every day. All of us are available during regular office hours via email, Google Hangout, and through our normal office phone extensions (unless otherwise noted). Whether you’re looking for community resources, are in need of support navigating the online education world, or are just looking to connect with a counselor for a quick check-in, we’re here for you.
We look forward to working together in this new and uncharted territory!
