All students have been invited to either our 7th or 8th grade Counseling Google Classroom. There will be no assignments, meetings, or grades for this classroom. It is just a place where we can share helpful resources, reminders about school events, and various opportunities relevant to students through a format that is familiar to them. This is also the easiest way for students to reach out to us by clicking the people tab and emailing us from there. If your student has not received an invitation, please reach out to their counselor and we will make sure to get them added.
In the case of a crisis or emergency, please contact SAFTY at 1-888-334-2777 or your local law enforcement and request a welfare check.
