Guidance Department

It is our intent to provide you with online access to the career, personal/social, and academic information available through our department.

Education should provide the foundation by which people will make decisions and function effectively within a changing society. Education should recognize and celebrate the individual accomplishments of individuals as it fosters individual growth. Ultimately, this growth will enhance the intellectual, physical, technological, emotional, moral, and aesthetic needs of the District's students. The Guidance Department firmly believes in educating the whole student and recognizes the individual components that work together on an ever changing basis to form the student we see in our school.

Students should make appointments to see their counselors by completing an appointment request form found online, in homerooms, and in the guidance office. Parents can make appointments for seeing their child's counselor by calling or emailing the office.

Homework Requests:
Students who have been absent from school 2 or more consecutive days, may have their parents call in a request for work to be collected. All requests must be directed to the Guidance Secretary at ext. 226 prior to 10am in order for work to be available for pickup on that day. We highly suggest that parents come to pick up all books and work themselves rather than trusting another student to bring it home. If another student will be picking up the work, it is the responsibility of the parent to notify that student.
