We want to make sure that you have the support you need and this will better help us determine where to focus our attention. We hope to have it filled out by next Friday, September 25th. Thank you and have a great weekend.

The counseling department would appreciate any feedback you can provide on this survey as a way to help us support you during this time of remote learning. We want to make sure not only your students are supported but also the parents/guardians who are in this learning adventure as well. We thank you for filling this out and will work to address the needs of our community.
