Weekly Check-in from MHS Counseling

Montgomery High School

Hello Viking Family,



We are now 1/2 way through our FOURTH week of this new reality called "Distance Learning". It has been a challenge to say the least but we hope you are able to settle into a bit of a routine with your family and find ways to take care of yourselves as well.


We don't have a lot of new updates for you this week, but keep reading for some reminders to share with your students.


CONNECTING WITH TEACHERS and google classrooms

We have heard from several teachers that some students have not yet connected with them at all or signed up for their Google Classroom. All students should be able to sign in with their SCHOOL EMAIL to get connected to their classes. We have made contact with all families that let us know they needed a computer and will be doing another distribution this week. Please email your counselor or Ms. Dile if you are having trouble connecting to your classes: sdile@srcs.k12.ca.us


If you want to email your teacher-do NOT email through illuminate, but email directly to the school. The directory can be found here:Staff Emails



COUNSELING GOOGLE 'CLASSROOM'

Speaking of google classrooms, many students have already signed up for our Counseling Dept. classroom where we are putting important updates and links as we get new information. Please ask them to sign up with this code: 7h2t2dr

We know they are getting A LOT of emails so we are doing our best to just post the essential information.


SRJC dual enrollment update

There are NEW registration dates and information for summer and fall enrollment. The summer schedule should be out on 4/16. The FALL schedule will be DELAYED. From SRJC :This may come as a surprise, but unfortunately the release of the online Fall 2020 Schedule of Classes and the dates for Fall 2020 registration have been delayed. Summer 2020 registration will continue as planned. This decision was made after consultation with SRJC faculty, Academic Affairs staff, counseling, Admissions & Records, and the SRJC Priority Registration workgroup. The change was necessary to provide additional time for class schedule development, and provide more time for students to meet with counselors. Of course, the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak is at the center of this decision. The Fall 2020 Schedule of Classes is tentatively scheduled to be posted online on May 15th.


We will be giving you more information (likely next week) about HOW to proceed with the dual enrollment process as soon as we work out the specific details with the JC. We will put out the info. to all students as well as post it in the MONTY COUNSELING GOOGLE CLASSROOM


MONTY ZEN

The counselors will be at Montgomery tomorrow helping with chromebook distribution so Monty Zen will not be held this week. If your student is looking for a place to learn tools to deal with stress and anxiety-we 'meet' weekly via zoom on Thursdays at 1:30. Please have them check with their counselor or the google classroom for the LINK.


As always, please reach out to your counselor for any support that you may need.
