Parent Information

Parent - School Communications

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. 
 
In an effort to keep the lines of communication open, the high school has a number of way to check on your child's progress.
 
  1. Progress Reports - 4 times a year. They are listed in Parent Access under report card. Progress Reports will be available to       view     on line begining mid week of 9/11/18, 11/13/18, 2/5/19, and 4/16/19.
  2. Report Cards - They are mailed home 4 times per year.
  3. Parent/Teacher Conferences - November 7, 2018 and February 7, 2019  4-7 p.m.
  4. Parent Access - This online feature will keep you up to date with grades and averages in each of you student's classes as well as a detailed information on how well they did on each assignment, quiz, and tests, tardies, and attendance. You can access parent access by clicking on the Quick Links tab and then Progress book or under the Parents tab and slide down to Progress Book for Grades. If you haven't created an account yet click on sign up. If you need your registration key please contact Mrs. Hadden at 216.662.2800 ext. 52011 or email at  [email protected]

What might a parent talk to a counselor about?

  • I need to communicate with all teachers about a situation at home, school, and/or a medical need.
  • I need some suggestions on how to improve my child’s study habits.
  • What kind of courses does my child need to take to get into college?
