Letter from Student Services

We are successfully into our second week of school, only 38 weeks to go! Honestly though the counselors, and all of the faculty, have been thrilled to see the hallways bustling and for all of our students able to return in person five days a week. The counselors have been working diligently to get all the students’ schedules set for the year. We realize that not every student will have their schedule exactly how they want but please understand that the counselors will ensure that they have everything they need. They are not able to accommodate specific teacher and period requests. 

Schedule corrections:  August 19-27
Optional changes based on availability:  August 30-September 2

Seniors Counselors will be meeting with the seniors through their Government classes September 8-13. Seniors should be viewing the Student Services Course in Schoology for updated information about transcript requests, college rep visits and much more.

Freshmen The freshmen will be meeting up with their mentor again on September 23 through their advisory period.
