School Closure Information from your Counseling Department:

(Effective March 17th-June 15th)


Understanding that the closure of schools doesn't eliminate the support our students need from counselors, our guidance team will be available (via email/Google hangout) during school hours (9am - 2pm).  Appointments may be made by email to live chat with your grade level counselor via Google hangout messenger.  In addition, the REACH meeting scheduled for April 7, 2020 with 8th grade students has been canceled.

The Long Valley Middle School Counseling Program promotes a positive school climate and supports student success through a developmental child-centered approach.


Our mission as school counselors is to provide a comprehensive guidance program that will assist all students in acquiring the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to be successful students, responsible and productive citizens, and become lifelong learners.  The program provides an atmosphere in which the dignity, culture, and social/emotional needs of every student are valued and one in which mutual respect and individuality are practiced.
