  • Counseling Updates (Spring 2020) During Online Format: 

    Hello students/parents/guardians, 

    We hope you are all staying safe and calm during this difficult time in our world. As you know, school has been moved to an online format until at least May 1st and all events have been canceled through April 30th (May events are TBD). In the meantime, counselors are available via email or you can schedule a Zoom video conference or phone conference if you wish to discuss any specific concerns with your counselor. If you were meeting with a MFT for mental health support, those will be moved to a video format during this time. If you are looking for mental health support, below are some resources: 

    • Crisis Text Line: Text HOME to 741741 to connect with a Crisis Counselor. 
    • Nikki Jackson, LMFT ( If you are struggling with emotional overwhelm or other mental health challenges, please email your designated District Guidance Coordinators.
    • More resources can be found on the Shelter in Place document. 

    Below are some updates specific to your grade. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your counselor. If you have questions on a specific class, contact your teacher. This is a fluid and new situation for all of us and none of us have all the answers right now, but we are here to support you (virtually) during this time. 

    Sending positive vibes your way! 

    12th Grade: 

    We know your students have lots of questions about what is happening with their Counseling 270 classes. Our amazing Academic Counseling Department has been working tirelessly to convert the Counseling 270 classes from face-to-face to online, and well as rescheduling the classes there were scheduled this week. Things are changing very quickly as you can imagine, and this is what we can share with you as of the timing of this update:

    • All remaining Coun 270’s will go online. Even if the online class schedule still states a physical meeting room on campus, STUDENTS SHOULD NOT GO TO CAMPUS FOR CLASS. The Scheduling Office is handling schedule changes for thousands of sections which are changing from physical room numbers to online modalities…the online schedule will be updated as soon as possible.
    • Instructors have already or will email the students in their classes soon with instructions and more information.
    • The Coun 270 classes will be taught through Canvas. Counselors will send out instructions about how to log in to Canvas.
    • The Coun 270’s that were scheduled for this week will be rescheduled and students will be notified. Counseling is working on that.
    • If students are concerned, ask them to email their Coun 270 instructor to get answers to their questions.
    • The Welcome and Connect Center is up and running remotely. Students can call 707-527-4410 to get help with canvas and more.  
    • If students are not enrolled in Coun 270, they may complete the online orientation available in their portal and be able to register as Priority 4. Of course, we know that Coun 270 is the best choice for students and highly encourage attendance in this course as the first option for orientation.
