As you would anticipate, most of the day of a Guidance Counselor is spent meeting with students and families. As a result we ask that you give us twenty four hours to respond to email and voicemail. Obviously there are plenty of times that we will not need this window to respond but certain times of the year can be extremely busy. If your call is urgent in nature, please state that in your call. Please be advised that for urgent situations, email is not the best method of communication.AppointmentsStudents and families are encouraged to make appointments to see the Guidance Counselors. Counselors are available Monday through Friday during school hours. Additionally, all counselors work one flex night a week to provide for after school/evening appointments (on this day the counselor comes into school in the early afternoon). Schedules of night appointments will be available when school begins.To make an appointment, students and families can sign up in the appointment books within the Guidance Office. Students will be given a pass for the class which is during that period. It is the student's responsibility to show that pass to the teacher PRIOR to coming to Guidance for the appointment. Students WILL NOT be called down out of class as we do not want to interrupt the class. Students should also consider the class for which they will be leaving for the appointment. They should not miss any exams, projects etc.Families can also call the DHS Guidance Office to make an appointment. Unless it is an emergency situation, it is difficult for us to accommodate walk-ins, so please do your best to make advance appointments.Newsletter
