Letters Of Recommendation (LORs) from their teachers and counselors. 

Below is the process for obtaining one from your school counselors:

  1. Find out if the school requires (vs recommends/suggests) a LOR from your school counselor
  2. Print your letter of request for the LOR and address it to your school counselor
  3. Schedule an appointment through Mrs. Kelly; let her know that it is to request a LOR
  4. Meet w/ your school counselor; we will review the packet of info we need completed by you & explain how to provide us the best information possible so you receive the best LOR possible

Don't request a meeting the week before your application is due
DO schedule your meeting 6-8 weeks before your application is due
Don't miss your appointment(s)
DO reschedule your appointment in advance if you discover you have a conflict
Don't have your parents/guardians schedule your meetings
DO treat these as formal requests and meetings
DO remember to express your gratitude to anyone who writes you a may enhance your next LOR you need for a job, scholarship, internship, etc

During February, Freshmen received the Signs Of Suicide presentation. Throughout the following weeks, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors have received "booster" presentations as well.

As a prevention curriculum, students are taught to recognize the signs and symptoms of depression and suicide and to "ACT". Acknowledge, Care, and Tell a Trusted Adult.
  • Careline: 1-877-266-4357/HELP: 24/7 help and support available with trained counselors 
  • TEXT: "4HELP" to 839-863  3pm-11pm Tues-Sat
We encouraged all students to put these resources in their phones so they are easily accessible. Parents and guardians, we encourage you to talk with your students; ask them what they learned and who their Trusted Adults might be. Maybe save the above numbers in your phones as well in case you ever need quick access to them for yourself or someone else.
