Ms. Latrieva Wilson
Our school counselors are Latrieva Wilson and Sarah Griffin. Professional school counselors are uniquely qualified to address the developmental needs of all students. School counselors deliver a comprehensive School Counseling program encouraging all students’ academic, career and social emotional development.
The counselors primarily deliver short-term, solution focused services through individual or small group counseling and through classroom guidance, either in the Enhancement rotation or monthly classroom visits to address things like social skills, self control, coping skills and self confidence. If longer-term individual counseling services are needed, the counselors can provide families with a list of community agencies and assist them with making contact or navigating the referral process.
School Counselors adhere to the ethical standards of the American School Counselor Association and the North Carolina School Counseling Association. Counselors also maintain confidentiality. However, there are limits to confidentiality, which include situations where there is risk of danger. If there is suspicion that the student could harm him or herself, is in danger of being abused or neglected, or could be of risk to others, the counselor is legally and ethically bound to report.
To request service: Appointments can be requested by writing a note, calling, emailing or stopping by the counseling office. School counselors also have an electronic referral form available on their websites. Students may decide self refer and there is a station for this inside of our office area. Often, referrals are made by teachers, parents, principals, or occasionally, even concerned friends.
For further information on the counseling program, counseling materials, community resources, or procedures by which a parent may limit a student's participation in the counseling program, please contact Ms. Wilson or Ms. Griffin.
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
