Ouray School Counseling: From the school counselor:  "Though the schools are closed, I am still available during normal school hours, Monday through Friday, 8:20 to 4:20 to provide counseling services. My school number, 970 563 4505 ext 6052, still works to reach me. Also, I'll be checking my email, jcole@ouray.k12.co.us, frequently, and will respond during these same hours. Email me the best number or means to contact you and I'll do my best to use those means. For public safety, I will mostly make myself available over the phone or through electronic communication, but if deemed necessary, I can meet clients at a park for a walk and talk, providing care, while still maintaining a healthy distance. Stay healthy and productive! Email: jcole@ouray.k12.co.usPhone: 9703254505 ext 6052  More Here.
