Parent/Guardian Appointments 
If you have a question about your student's current grade or course content, please contact the teacher directly. If you have a general counseling question or concern, the most effective way is to contact us via email and/or phone. However, please keep in mind if the issue you wish to discuss is teacher-related you should consider contacting the teacher first.
