How can I see my counselor during Covid-19/hybrid Learning:

Students: Please email your counselor to set up an appointment OR schedule an office hour appointment using your counselor's google calendar. This will ensure that we are able to abide by social distancing regulations and manage how many students are in our office at a time, it will also provide us the opportunity to meet with students via Google Meets if necessary.

Parents: It is best to call the office to arrange an appointment to see your student's counselor. This ensures appropriate time allocated to your needs.
