Email from our daughters high school:

โ€œDue to budget cuts, the number of counselors serving Washburn students has shrunk from 5 to 3. Though our enrollment will once again be approximately 1650 studentsโ€ฆโ€

We are in an incredibly anxious time. Many families are destabilized due to the pandemic and record unemployment. Add to that the tough work that we need to do on racism. Reducing counselors by 40% in the midst of that feels short-sighted.

Budgets are what they are, but hopefully these kids are going to find some support in their communities and families too, as many will need it.
