Message from Counseling Department

Our counselors and social workers would like to remind all students that spring time can be a stressful time of the year.  Remember if you or a friend is struggling to reach out to a counselor, teacher or social worker.  
Even if you're sworn to secrecy and you feel like you'll be betraying your friend if you tell, you should still get help. Share your concerns with an adult you trust as soon as possible.   The important thing is to notify a responsible adult. Although it may be tempting to try to help your friend on your own, it's always safest to get help.  You can always stop by the counseling office or use Sprigeo to report a concern.  The Sprigeo link is located on the front page of the LHS website.  You will also find additional resources on the LHS Counseling website under Personal Resources.  

LHS is in 2nd Place for the
