Hello,

We hope you are staying safe and healthy. If you have an urgent mental health need, please contact the Crisis Line for immediate support at 866-427-4747 or visit the crisis website for more options at www.crisisconnections.org/contact/. If you are already connected with an outside counselor/therapist – please connect with them.

Thank you so much for your support and flexibility through these times. Please know that we are still here for you and will respond as fast as we can. Here is some general information that we would like to share:

  1. The best way to reach us is by e-mail. Please be mindful that we will not have access to our office phone. Also, please be as specific as possible in your e-mail. For high school counselor – Kerince Bowen, bowenk@bsd405.org. For middle school counselor – Arty Christianto, christiantoa@bsd405.org.
  2. Any required meetings will be done virtually via Microsoft Teams or by phone call. For phone calls, remember that your school counselor may be calling from a “blocked” number.
  3. If you are thinking about Outside Learning Experiences, you must connect with your school counselor first as outside learning opportunities MUST be pre-approved in order to be eligible for credit on BSD transcript.

A lot of information will be posted on our district and school website including these helpful links:
