Students who wish to meet with and speak to a counselor may make an appointment to do so during a passing period, while at lunch, or before or after school. It is up to the student to make an appointment on her/his own time. Students are not allowed to arrive late to a class because they were making an appointment to speak with a counselor. Students wishing to speak with a counselor will be given a pass to do so. As well, students are given a signed and dated pass (that includes the time the student left the Counseling Office) to return to class after meeting with a counselor.
