Need Help? We are Here for You!



Social and emotional Learning (SEL) is at the forefront of our work here at Lees Corner. Each month the clinical team (counselors, social worker and psychologist) will answer parent questions regarding students' needs in and out of the classroom. All questions are anonymous and no contact information will be collected. We ask that any urgent student or family matter be addressed directly with a member of the clinical team. Please click on the link below to access the form to submit your question.

Don’t know the members of the clinical team? Read here about who we are and what we do!
