Downingtown Middle Counseling
Downingtown Middle School Counseling Department
Counseling Administrative Assistant:
Kim Alvarez, firstname.lastname@example.org
Regular Hours of Operation: The Counseling Department is open year -round, Monday-Friday from 7:00 am - 3:00 pm. Counselors are available during the school year from 7:25 am - 2:55 pm each day school is in session.
Appointment Scheduling: The Counseling Department operates on a "walk-in" approach. Students are not required to have an appointment to stop in and see their counselor. If the counselor is not available when a student drops in, they will be asked to schedule an appointment at a later time. Students are welcome to schedule an appointment if they prefer, and parents are likewise encouraged to schedule an appointment as well, to ensure a counselor will be available when they come in. To request an appointment, please visit the counseling office or contact your counselor.
