Counseling COVID-19 Resource Page

Parents, guardians, and students of Hilo High School,

Without a doubt, many of us are feeling anxious as we navigate the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. We've created a resource page (filled with multiple resources and informative links!) to help educate and support one another during this unsettling time. With everything that is going on in our world, it is important to acknowledge our emotional state and confide in one another if needed.

If you would like to contact us, please email us or fill out the Counseling Request Form at the bottom of this page.
