Confidentiality
When you visit, you are in a no gossip zone! What you say, stays private, unless someone is hurting you, you want to hurt someone, or you want to hurt yourself. In a public school, records can be requested by the courts and parents do have certain rights, however it is important that you know I will always advocate that your privacy be respected!
