Contacting Your Counselor
If you are a STUDENT and want to meet with your counselor, you may do any of the following:
- Appointments: Students may make an appointment to see their counselor by filling out an appointment request in Canvas. This method is best if you think your question or concern might take more time to address.
- Email: Sending your counselor an email saves students from missing important class instruction and having to wait in line. Emailing your counselor is a quick and easy way to get answers to your questions and concerns.
If you are a PARENT or GUARDIAN, please use the following guidelines:
If you have a question about your student's current grade or course content, please contact the teacher directly. You may use Canvas or AERIES to monitor your student's progress in his or her classes. The counselors do not have additional information regarding specific classes, so teachers will be best equipped to inform and guide you.
If you have a general question or concern for your student's counselor, the most expedient way to contact him or her is through email. You can also contact your student's counselor through voicemail. Counselors will try to get back to you within 24-48 hours (not including weekends or Holidays). Please keep in mind that if you're calling about a teacher-related issue, we ask that you have communicated with the teacher first.
