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. 
  2. Report Cards - They are mailed home 4 times per year.
  3. Parent/Teacher Conferences -  February 2021
  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]

Helpful Information for senior and junior parents

All juniors are given the opportunity to take the ACT here at school in February. Information will be given to your student during their English class and the morning announcements regarding the test.
 

Listen up Seniors - If you believe you qualify for an Honors Diploma, please see Mrs. Hadden in the  Guidance Office to make sure your name is included.  
Senior Calendars are posted on the Guidance Department News page.

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?
