WHS Counselors' Message

We're here for you!

As we continue our at-home school model, we want to make sure you know that we, the counselors, are still working and available to our WHS students and families. Emails and phone numbers, with contact hours, have been posted to our website, www.wasatchhighcounseling.com

If you are in need of support or are aware of another student that is in need of social-emotional or academic support please contact one of us. You can also use the SafeUT app to report if you are in crisis or know of someone who is in crisis. We are here for you and want to help!

TRACK YOUR STUDENT'S ACADEMIC PROGRESS

SIS & CANVAS Parent Accounts

We highly recommend to all parents that they create observer accounts in SIS and CANVAS. This will allow you to login and see your student's academic progress. Checking progress is especially important now that we are all participating in remote-learning. Please click on each document below for instructions as to how to create your account.

11th GRADE

PCCRS

Watch your emails for information about 11th grade PCCRs. We will be going over ACT scores, progress towards graduation, and choosing classes for 12th grade. Some counselors will be offering appointments during spring break. Appointments will be available through the end of April. All appointments will be face-to-face via Zoom, a video-conferencing platform. Please use your student's school device to access the Zoom conference.


All juniors will need to go to the NEW CANVAS COURSE titled "College and Career Readiness" to view videos, course options, and more BEFORE attending your PCCR.
