Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I get to see my Counselor?
A: We are in room 43. You can come down any time to sign up to talk to your Counselor. Many times you can walk right in. Parents are encouraged to call or email to make an appointment.
Q: When can I change my schedule?
A: We ask that you set up your schedule for the year in August at registration. If you need to make changes during the school year, see your Counselor. You can drop and add classes during the first five days of the new term. You may drop a class during the first three weeks of the term but cannot add a new class after the first five days. Any classes dropped after three weeks will result in a fail for the class and will affect your academic record.
