    Please review our "Meet the Counselors" page to make sure you know who your counselor is. We have some wonderful new counselors on staff that are ready to meet you, along with some familiar faces from last year. The alphabet split has changed slightly, so you might review that to make sure you know who your counselor is. We are ready to help with social/emotional needs, post-secondary planning, and other counseling services throughout the year. Can't wait to see our Unicorns back on campus!

     
     
    August 26, 2021

    If you have submitted a schedule change form or will be doing so shortly, please be patient with the counselor's reply. We are fielding 500+ schedule change requests at this time and that is going to take counselors' time. We are asking that the schedule change request process (below) be followed, and to not follow up with emails, phone calls, or visits to the office as that will delay our response time substantially.

    August 23, 2021

    Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!!!! The most frequently asked question this week is "How can I change my schedule?" Information about schedule change requests, including valid reasons to request a change, will be printed on the bottom of their schedule.

     

    How Do I Request a Change?

    First, it is important to understand that schedule changes have significant negative impacts on class size, instructional effectiveness, and teacher availability, therefore only certain requests will be honored. Students will have the first two weeks of the semester to request a schedule correction.

    • Program changes (band, athletics, ROTC, etc) must be requested on a blue form available in the front office. Parent and teacher signatures are required.
    • Level changes (AP to academic, honors to academic, etc) must be requested on a hot pink form available from the front office. Parent and teacher signatures are required.
    • All other changes for one of the reasons listed below must be requested using our online form on the counselor's website. The link to request changes will be activated at the END of the first day of school. You can find the link under your counselors' picture on "Meet the Counselors" page. Students should check their email regularly to receive news regarding the status of their request. Only changes that meet the criteria for schedule changes will be granted.
    • Valid reasons for schedule changes: Two of same class; Missing a class; Senior who is missing a class required for graduation; Does not have a full schedule/missing class; Has previously failed course with same teacher; Does not have prerequisites for course; Earned credit for the course already.
