Senior Individual Planning Sessions:  Sept 13th - Sept 17th, 2021

The counselors will be conducting Senior Individual Planning Sessions with all seniors during the week of September 13th - September 17th through their English IV classes.

Each counselor will meet with each student individually to discuss their credits, review transcripts, and give out SAT & ACT test dates.  They will also give information on college resources that are available in the College Cafe and discuss each student's post-secondary plans.

Important Counseling Update:


An important note from the Counseling Department regarding student schedules in HAC. We are aware that students are able to view their schedules in HAC. However, those schedules are not necessarily going to be the same on the first day of school.

Necessary Corrections:

We are currently working on Master Schedule changes, and the current schedule in HAC may change. In addition, schedule changes were due in the Counseling Office on June 11th. Therefore, the only schedule changes that will be made are schedule corrections, such as, a student should be in English 1, but has English 2 on their schedule, or is missing a lunch period.


The counseling office has been receiving quite a few phone calls regarding student’s assigned lunch period. For the most part, lunch periods are assigned by grade level: 4th period lunch is for 9th graders, 5th period Lunch is for 10th graders and 6th period Lunch is for 11th & 12 grade students. However, a student’s schedule could affect that lunch schedule. For instance, a 10th grade student’s athletic period may be in 3rd period, therefore, their lunch period would be 4th period to allow more time for that student’s practice, opportunity to change clothes, and eat lunch.

Schedule an Appointment:

At this time, counselors are registering new students on a daily basis, and are not available for drop in appointments. Please contact them by phone or email, your counselor’s contact information can be found attached below.
