    Hello Unionville Families,                                                      March 23, 2020

    I hope everyone is doing well and is healthy. I miss seeing your children so much! I know that this is a stressful and uncertain time and that we all have different needs and situations. If you or your child needs additional support, please email me at stacy.burnette@ucps.k12.nc.us . I am checking my email daily and will respond within 24 hours. We also have our two social workers and mental health therapist available for support as well.

    I will be reaching out to our teachers later today, to have them send out more specific resources to you via their class email.

    Please tell your children that I miss them and that I’m thinking of them and send my love!!

  • Confidentiality Statement

    School counselors recognize their primary obligation for confidentiality is to the student but balance that obligation with an understanding of the family or guardians’ legal and inherent rights to be the guiding voice in their children’s lives (ASCA Code of Ethics).
    The role of the school counselor in regards to confidentiality is:

    • To support the students right to privacy and protect confidential information received from students, the family, guardian and staff members
    • To explain the meaning and limits of confidentiality to students in developmentally appropriate terms
    • To provide appropriate disclosure and informed consent regarding the counseling relationship and confidentiality
    • To inform students and the family of the limits to confidentiality when: Student poses a danger to self or others, Court ordered disclosure, Consultation with other professionals in support of the student i.e. colleagues, supervisors, treatment teams, and other support personnel
    • To keep personal notes separate from educational records and not disclose their contents except when privacy exceptions exist
    • To seek guidance from supervisors and appropriate legal advice when their records are subpoenaed
    • To assert their belief that information shared by students is “confidential” and should not be revealed without the student’s consent
    • To adhere to all laws protecting student records, health information, and special services (i.e., HIPAA, FERPA, IDEA)
