Student Information

The guidance office is a place a student or parent may come to discuss concerns confidentially.  Confidentiality means that personal concerns will not be shared with others. However, counselors are required by law to contact other adults if a situation arises that puts someone in physical or emotional harm.  

How to see your counselor
For normal visits (ie. Scheduling problems, questions about college or careers, etc.), students should come to the Guidance Office before school, after school or during their study hall or lunch. If an emergency occurs, students can come down immediately. They should see the teacher of the class they are assigned to at that time for a pass and then come to the Guidance Office. If you will let Mrs. Mather know your name and what you need to see your Counselor about, she will make sure they see you in a timely manner.
Remember, if you come down during class time without a pass from your teacher, we cannot give you an approved pass to go back.

SENIOR INTERVIEWS:
Start September 4, 2018
The Guidance Counselors will be meeting with each senior to make sure everything is in order for graduation in May.  This is extremely important!  Please have your student check the Guidance Office windows so they know their date and time.  They should report directly to the Guidance Office at their scheduled time and check in with Mrs. Hadden. 

Please remember, that sometimes unexpected things come up and your guidance counselor may become busy during your scheduled time, or maybe you miss your scheduled interview.  No worries!!  If the counselor misses you, they will be sure to contact you, and make sure they meet with you at a later time.

If you have any questions, please contact the Guidance Office.
