Counseling Office clerical hours are 7:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Counselor hours are the same as teacher hours which is the regular school day. Unfortunately drop in's to see the counselors are not possible as counselors are seeing students during the school day. If you would like to meet with your student's counselor, you must make an appointment in advance. You can contact the Counseling Secretary to schedule an appointment, or you can email the counselor directly. The best way to reach the counselor is by email
. If you don't have email access, the counseling office telephone number is
(916) 971-7436, fax number (916) 971-7385.

How do I see my counselor?
If a student would like to see their counselor they can come in before school, during lunch, or after school, and if the counselor is available they will see the student immediately. If the counselor is not available or the student is unable to come in on their own time, they can make an appointment with the Counseling Secretary during the school day. Students are responsible for making up any missed classwork during this time.
If the parent would like to see their student's counselor they must call or email to request an appointment. Drop ins during the day are not possible as counselors are seeing students at that time. Please either email the counselor directly, or contact the Counseling Secretary to schedule an appointment.
I/my student has a grade that I want to discuss, or is struggling in a class: The very first action that needs to take place is for the student and or parent to contact the teacher directly. Counselors do not know why a student has earned the grade they have or even the progress the student has made in the class, the teacher is the contact point. If after having a discussion with the teacher there are still concerns, then you would contact the counselor.
