Ms. Leah Preston
Secondary School Counselor

The goal of this department is to maximize the personal growth of each of our students. Our main functions are:

  • Academic advisement: Program planning, course selection, grading, and progress reports.
  • Assessment: Identification, interpretation, and discussion of aptitudes through standardized testing.
  • Counseling: Areas offered are Academic, College Placement, Personal, Career, Scholarship, Financial Aid, etc.
  • Individual and group counseling is available as the need arises.

The counselor’s door is always open if it is an emergency. If not, students are welcome to come by and set up a time to meet so that students miss as little classroom instruction as possible. Parents are invited to email or call if there are any questions or concerns.

Confidentiality: When meeting with the school counselor, your conversations are most likely kept confidential. If the counselor believes someone is in danger, they are required by law to share that information. That information will only be shared with individuals who need to know. Your counselor will need to share if: you are being harmed by someone, you intend to harm another, or you want to harm yourself.

OK2SAY is a program designed to empower Michigan students, parents, school personnel, community mental health service programs, and law enforcement to share and respond to student safety threats.

The goal of OK2SAY is to stop harmful behavior before it occurs by encouraging anyone to report threatening behavior to caring adult authorities who can help. OK2SAY encourages Michigan residents to confidentially submit tips 24/7 using the OK2SAY mobile app, online, email, texting, or by calling trained program technicians. Upon receipt of a tip, specially trained OK2SAY technicians address the immediate need and forward the information to the appropriate responding law enforcement agency or organization. Tips go to schools, local law enforcement agencies, community mental health agencies or the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

OK2SAY is not an emergency reporting system. Dial 911 for emergency situations!

Information submitted to OK2SAY is CONFIDENTIAL, so your identity is safe. Tips can be submitted 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
