Contacting Counselors

The best way to contact your counselor is by email. Counselors do not have voicemail on their phones so you will not be able to leave a message if you call and no one answers. That said, you’re welcome to try to reach them by phone at (510) 450-5400, Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Again, we encourage you to make initial contact through email, if possible. You may also contact counseling office assistant LaDale Cummings at (510) 450-5400 ext 151 or by email at 

Appointments & Drop-Ins

Students should schedule an appointment to see their counselor before school, during lunch, or after school. Counselors also have drop-in sessions during lunch and after school. During the school day, students must remain in their classes and will not be seen by their counselor without written permission (a blue pass).
