If a student needs to talk with someone about a personal problem or a school problem, a counselor is available. Under normal circumstances, the procedure for seeing a counselor is:
Career counselors meet with students quarterly to help students identify areas of interest and to begin career exploration. Activities are designed to encourage students to evaluate personal skills and preferences, to set goals for career options, and to apply appropriate steps in education toward the achievement of those goals.
A full-time mental health counselor is available to students and their families through the Piedmont Mental Health Facility. Appointments can be secured through our guidance department.
If it becomes necessary for a student to withdraw from Bryson, the student's custodial parent or legal guardian must send a written note stating where the child is transferring and the student's last day of attendance at Bryson Middle. The student must report to the Guidance Office by 8:30 a.m. on the morning of his/her last day of attendance to pick up the withdrawal form which will be completed by his/her teachers. At the end of the day he/she will receive a withdrawal packet to take to the new school. Upon written request, Bryson Middle will forward student records.
If students have a change of address or phone number, they should report these changes to the school immediately. Accurate addresses and phone numbers are needed in case of an emergency. The school should have an up-to-date address and phone number for each student's parents or guardian at all times. To update information with the health room, please call the school nurse at 355-2107. To update all other information, please call the Guidance Office at 355-2114.
