If you need to see your counsellor, please complete an appointment request slip found on the counter in guidance and place in the respective mailbox. You will then receive it back in your homeroom with a time and date set for you. Let your classroom teacher know ahead of time when you need to leave class and bring the slip with you. It will become your admit slip upon your return to class.
