Hello, Seadogs! On the tabs below, you will find resources and optional activities that support students' academic, social/emotional, and career development during this extended school closure. We are thinking of you, and we want you to know that even though our school building may be closed, your school counselors are still here for you!

We are available by appointment to address questions or concerns about resources and recommendation. Please contact the counselor for your grade level using the email addresses below.

Grades K, 2, 4  Kimberly Kiser kiserkc@pwcs.edu
Grades 1, 3, 5 – Sarah Fullerton fullerse@pwcs.edu

Per the PWCS Division, school counselors are not providing virtual mental health counseling during school closures. Counselors are able to provide consultation and/or to connect families to external resources. You can find links to private providers and community resources via the Prince William County Community Services webpage.

PWCS cares deeply about students’ emotional well-being during their time away from school. If a student is in need of emotional support during this time, please feel free to send an e-mail to studentsupportservices@pwcs.edu. A school mental health or health professional will answer and offer virtual support to students to the best of their ability. This e-mail is not to be used for emergency situations as it will not be monitored 24 hours a day. If a student is ever in an emergency situation he/she is encouraged to call 911 or utilize one of the resources listed below:
