Every LFHS student has an assigned social worker who is available for counseling, either on an as-needed basis or in regular scheduled sessions. Social Workers help students better manage stresses that affect performance and functioning in school. Social Workers also host SSRT’s (Student Support Round Tables) where students meet weekly to support each other around shared life stresses. All social work is private and confidential, unless a student is deemed to be physically at-risk. View Core Teams
