In spite of COVID-19 and the uncertainty it brings, we're excited to start a new school year and to help you navigate the potentially weird (but wonderful!) waters ahead.
To minimize spread of the coronavirus, all schedule changes will be requested online rather than in person this year. If you have any concerns about your current schedule, fill out this form to start a conversation with your counselor. You have until 3:00 on Friday, August 28th, to submit requests.
Make sure you read the form carefully--doing so increases your odds of getting the change(s) you request.
If you run into problems with the form, call 385-646-5302 to let us know. Thanks!
P.S. Again, the form closes at 3:00 on Friday, August 28th
