• Dear Dalmatian Families,

    While I am not able to provide face to face direct services at this time, I can continue to support students virtually.  I will be providing Nearpod lessons on a weekly basis that are designed to help students with some of the issues they may be facing.  In addition, I have posted Wellness Social Emotional calendars that your child/children can do at home.    Finally, I have posted resources that are available to you, from food pantry to counseling with a licensed therapist and helpful videos.

    If you have questions or concerns about your child and would like to speak to me or do a virtual check in, here is my contact information: 

    I can be reached at mwashi@sisd.net or via Google Voice at (575) 322-2837 Monday - Friday from 8:00 - 4:00.

    Privacy and confidentiality are essential to having an effective school counseling program.   Helen Ball Elementary School recognizes the importance of good communication and good working relationships between students, parents, and the school. Therefore, every effort will be made to protect every student and parent’s privacy rights. However, it is our legal responsibility to break our oath of confidentiality due to safety issues such as harm to self and/or others.

    -Mrs. Washington
