    Contacting Your Counselor 

    DROP - IN: 
    STUDENTS: Counselors are available for drop-in visits before school, during break or lunch, and after school. Students may not drop-in during class time unless they need immediate attention. Drop-Ins are best for any question or concern that can be addressed quickly. 
    PARENTS: In order to ensure counselors can provide the level of services our students expect and deserve, we ask that parents/guardians please contact your student's counselor directly as opposed to making "drop-in" visit.
    APPOINTMENTS: If students would like to meet with their Academic Counselor during class time, they should either contact their counselor directly (via email or drop-in) or use either the sign-up sheet outside their office. Your counselor will send a pass from you as soon as they become available. 
    EMAIL: at the addresses above. This method saves you from missing valuable instruction in class, waiting in line, and will generally provide the quickest response to your questions.
