Contacting Your Counselor
The Counselors aim to function with an open-door policy. We are here to work with you to help with anything related to your academic, college/ career, and personal/ social life. If our doors are open and we don’t have another student in our office and/or are not on our phone then you are invited to come in and meet with us. If we are not available when you stop to see us, students have a wide range of options to be able to schedule times to see their counselor.
Fill out a request with Mrs. Qualls.
Schedule with counselor’s calendar
Send a remind message to your counselor
Send an email to your counselor
Stop back again during your lunch period, study hall, before or after school.
The Counseling Office hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 2:45 pm. Every effort is made to return phone calls within 24-48 business hours. We may not always be able to do this during busy times, but we’ll do our best. In particular, please be patient during the first 5 days of each semester and during registration weeks. You may also contact us using e-mail. Please remember that each counselor is responsible for approximately 200+ students, so setting up appointments prior to stopping into school is helpful and strongly recommended.
If you need immediate assistance please contact Mrs. Qualls at 330-676-8720
