MSAP statement to parents:

The Maryland Student Assistance Program (MSAP) is a program used in schools that provides an early intervention for possible “at-risk” students who are exhibiting emotional or behavioral concerns which could be related to alcohol, tobacco, drugs, mental health difficulties, or bullying. Parents/guardians who have concerns about the possibility of any of these issues are encouraged to contact the Southern Middle School guidance office to make a referral for their child to receive additional support.

If you would like to complete a concern form, please click the link below.
or contact the guidance office at 301-334-8881. Mrs. Panther is our guidance counselor for students with last names A-K and Mrs. Bell is our guidance counselor for students with last names L-Z.
