Freshmen

ALL FRESHMAN PARENTS AND GUARDIANS

Please use the links below to sign up for the state required meeting with your student and their counselor.

We have a new counselor at the high school, so many students have been assigned to a different counselor this year.  Please be sure you are signing up for the counselor responsible for your student's last name.

Our counselors will be meeting with every Freshman, and their guardians, to discuss their graduation requirements, pathway and post graduation plans.

Meetings will be held school days November 5-22.  Please discuss the time you choose with your student to avoid scheduling a meeting during a class they can not, or should not miss.

If you attend the Wednesday, November 6 Freshman family meeting from 6-7:30 you may opt out of your student's meeting.  Your student will still meet with their counselor.

Each counselor has their own online sign up sheet, if your student's last name begins with;
