Upcoming Events & Information

Summer Hours Information

During the summer break, please note the changes in hours and operation of the Counseling Center from June 18th - August 21st. During this time, there is usually one counselor and one support staff member to respond to all of our students/parents. Counselors rotate throughout the summer working Monday through Thursday from 8 to 3 for most of the weeks. All district buildings are closed on Fridays as part of an energy savings plan. 


Please note that the counselor’s main role is to register new students, assist students who failed courses to find remedial credit options, and to discuss course changes/waiver options. We appreciate your patience since it is not feasible to respond to phone calls/email messages with the same efficiency as during the school year. Please use the Counseling Center Contact Form for your questions over the summer.  Counselors are in on a rotating schedule, so using this form allows us to respond more effectively over the summer break. 


All requests to process college application materials will be addressed after the school year starts.




Checking Final Grades for Prerequisites and Self-Reporting Grades for College Applications
Many colleges (ex: The University of Pittsburgh and Penn State) have moved to a system where students will self-report their high school grades instead of sending a transcript when applying.  It is critical students accurately report their grades.
Students and parents can access all of a student's historical grades by logging into Powerschool.  Here are instructions on how to access your historical grades:
1. Log in to PowerSchool (SAM).
2. Under "Navigation" on the left-hand side of the screen click "Grade History."
3. You will be looking at your historical grades in this screen.  Each year has a tab at the top of the screen.
