August 6, 2021
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!
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.
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.
