Welcome to the Chinook Counseling Center
Chinook currently has 3 full-time school counselors who work with an alphabetical caseload distribution. This helps us to manage increasing enrollment and allows counselors to establish long-lasting relationships with families throughout their students’ middle school education. School Counselors support students with academic planning, social/emotional wellness, and make community referrals.
Students: Students are welcome to visit the Counseling Center for walk-in appointments every day before school, during lunches and during after school tutorial for quick questions. We encourage students to sign up in the counseling office to request an appointment with their school counselor if any needs arise during another time besides before or after school and lunch.
Parents/Guardians: We welcome the opportunity to meet with parents/guardians of our students to discuss concerns or answer any questions you may have in support of your student(s). Given that our schedules are often unpredictable, we do require you to schedule an appointment in advance. Please contact your student’s counselor directly to schedule an appointment. For your convenience, counselors continue to meet with families through MS teams for your convenience.
