After-Hour Emergencies

For safety reasons, if a student’s behavior appears to be harmful to himself/herself or to others, call 911.


Rules and laws governing confidentiality prohibit the staff from discussing any aspects of the referred student’s situation with any one unless the student signs a Release of Information Consent form. There are some exceptions to this law. If the student presents a threat to himself or someone else, if abuse to a child, the elderly, or a disabled persons is suspected, or if court ordered, confidentiality can be breached.
