CLOSURE UD​​​​​​PDATE FROM STUDENT SERVICES

The Lyndhurst High School Counseling Department will continue to offer advising related services through virtual/online platform via email. While the services provided depend on the timing/necessity of the school closure, counselors will continue to work with their caseload of students on scheduling courses for next year. In addition, counselors will continue to provide college/career specific information, answer questions related to scholarships and any other relatable concerns students may encounter.

School Counselors will be available throughout the day in accordance with the hours of operation found in the correspondence sent home. Counselors will continue to collaborate with the instructional staff, administrative assistants, and building administrators to ensure students are provided with the necessary resources to continue learning remotely.

If questions or concerns arise while the school is closed, please reach out to your child’s counselor via email.
