EMS Counseling Services

As we prepare for the start of school, the Counseling Department is aware that students and families are experiencing a range of emotions, from excitement and relief to worry and stress. Like any other year, the Counseling Department at the Elementary•Middle School will be available to support students so that they can best access their Landmark education. Group and individual counseling and consultation services with teachers or families will be provided by our counselors after determining students' needs. If you have a counseling related question please contact: 

Laura Polvinen, Elementary•Middle School Counseling Department head: lpolvinen@landmarkschool.org
