We are here to help our students succeed at school and in life. Schedule changes and academic advising are just a small part of what we do. We also do classroom presentations and lessons, in addition to group and individual counseling for issues such as conflict resolution, stress, personal and emotional issues. We solicit the help of the School Psychologist in situations that may need more in-depth therapy or testing. We are here to help! Come see us in the Counseling Center, call, or email us with any and all questions that you may have. Phone: 801-412-2811

8th Grade Job Shadow / 7th Grade Career Day November 29, 2017
November 29th is a big day for us at Elk Ridge. Our 8th grade students have the chance to take an individual field trip to a workplace to see for him/herself what that particular environment and employees' daily activities are like. This experience supports career exploration, which is an extremely important part of every middle school child's education. You will find the job shadow packet, which contains a permission slip due on Monday, November 20th, to be turned in to your student's History teacher.
November 29th is also our 7th grade Career Day. Members of the community will be here to talk to our 7th graders about their careers. Students select three different presentations to attend based on their interests. They will learn about duty, salary and education expectations for each career. This fun activity supports career exploration, which, again, is an extremely important part of every middle school child's education.
SafeUT CRISIS & TIPLINE SERVICES
Dear Parents: We are happy to announce the implementation of the SafeUT Crisis & Tipline Services for all students in the state of Utah. SafeUT is a new tool designed to provide confidential two-way communication with SafeUT crisis counselors or school staff through the SafeUT Mobile App, text number (coming soon) or Web. SafeUT Services are provided through the University of Utah's Crisis Center at the University Neuropsychiatric Institute (UNI) and all interactions are handled by licensed clinicians as part of their comprehensive crisis response services. Students who call or start a crisis chat or text through the mobile app or web will connect directly to a UNI crisis counselor at the UNI CrisisLine. The UNI CrisisLine provides 24/7 crisis intervention and emotional support to anyone in any type of crisis. Students can also use the SafeUT phone app or website to send non-crisis tips to school officials regarding topics such as bullying, cyberbullying, gang activity, drug & alcohol activity, and more. All tips are commpletley anonymous. SafeUT helps to provide students with a safe and secure school environment and provides our school administration with the communication and management tools needed to help and manage on-campus situations. Students will receive training on how to use the SafeUT Crisis & Tipline Services by their school administrators. The SafeUT Mobile App is available in the Apple and Google Play stores.
