Monte Vista has one full-time counselor, Mrs. Gail Barrish
The easiest way for a student to see the counselor is by appointment. Come to the main office and fill out a Counselor Appointment Form and then leave the form in the counselor's box. Mrs. Barrish will contact you as soon as possible. She is also available to students at nutrition and lunch.
Mrs. Barrish is available for parents by appointment, too. She sets her own appointments, so call the office at 482-8891 and leave a message on her voice mail and she will get back to you to set the appointment or answer your questions within 48 hours. You are also encouraged to e-mail her at Gbarrish@pleasantvalleysd.org for a quicker response.
For curriculum, specific classroom issues, grades and math placement, always contact the teacher first, as they are most familiar with your student and his/her abilities.
