Chairwoman’s Statement and Contact Information:
Welcome to our guidance department website. Our goal for this website is to have a "user-friendly" site where parents, students and interested community members can get information and resources to help them with guidance questions and concerns.
Our counseling staff at East is comprised of 10 counselors who are assigned to students alphabetically by grade. The hope is that counselors and students will develop a relationship that will continue over their four years of high school. In this way, counselors would be able to address students' needs in the areas of academics, future plans after high school as well as social/personal concerns.
Our guidance office telephone number is 631- 716-8200. Please feel free to call our office to speak with your son's/daughter's counselor.
