Counseling Calendar

  •  

    The DMS Counselors work Monday to Friday (7:45 am - 2:45 pm) collaborating with students/parents, teachers/staff, and the community to develop the best ways to support your loved ones at school. We've created an "open-door" culture within our site so that students feel free to get immediate support when needed.  Many times students can catch us during Break and Lunch, however, students can also reach the counselors by setting up an appointment so we can schedule a more appropriate time to meet.

    For a list of the DMS Counselor email addresses, click the About the Counselors tab. Students can also schedule an appointment using the Counseling Appointment Form tab by clicking HERE.
