How can my child meet with their counselor?
There are several ways students can see us:
1. Teacher Referral

3. Self-Referral

We meet with students for many reasons:
1. Academic - Performance, struggles, test taking strategies, study skills etc.
2. Friendship/ Peer/Social Concerns
3. Personal Concerns
4. Behavioral Concerns
5. Stress/Anxiety
6. Responsive Services - meeting their immediate needs and concerns

If you have a concern and you would like for a counselor to meet with your child, please contact your child's grade level counselor via email or phone.

The Office
Traffic
There have been several complaints about vehicles turning in front of waiting vehicles on Kirkwood Blvd. before or after school.
The far right lane must continue straight and not turn in front of vehicles waiting to the left trying to turn to get into the drop off / pick up line.
 
Remember from drivers ed - two lines that intersect have a point of impact. Officers will be issuing citations for this violation.
If you are needing to park in the parking lot you must either wait or turn in the parking lot from the east side traveling west.

Any questions on this please contact Officer Roberson 817-949-5414

Laptop Covers
We still have hard-shell laptop covers (green only) available for purchase for $20.
Please see Mrs. Gulliver or Mrs. Brett in the front office to purchase one. 

Dress Code Reminders:
If girls wear leggings, the top worn with them must be knuckle length. 

If she wears shorts, a dress or a skirt, these items must be at least knuckle length. 

Thank you for helping our students follow the district dress code.

Please review the full Dress Code in the Student Handbook.
