  • School Counselor Appointment Procedures for Students

    The counselors enjoy working with students on a one-on-one basis. We encourage students to meet their counselor early on in their high school career and build a relationship with them.

    If you would like to speak with your counselor, you will need to first either send them an e-mail or fill out an appointment slip in Student Services.  Appointment slips should be filled out either before school, after school, or during your lunch period.  Students should not leave in the middle of classtime to make an appointment unless it is an emergency.
    In the email or appointment request slip, be specific of the purpose of meeting.  Let your counselor know what you need.

    The counselor will e-mail you a response and/or send up a slip for you to come down during the day to meet. 

    School Counselor Appointment Procedures for Parents

    If you wish to speak with your child’s counselor, you may email them or call them at 919-881-4800. If you would like to meet with your child’s counselor in person, we ask that you call or email them and set up a scheduled time to meet ahead of time.

    Although the counselors do their best to be accessible, if you come to the Student Services office without an appointment, there is no guarantee that the counselor will be able to speak with you. Often the counselors have other appointments, are working with students, or may be out of their office due to classroom guidance, testing, or meetings off campus.

    If your child is in crisis and you need urgent assistance, the counselors will make every effort to speak with you or we will arrange for another counselor who is available to assist you and your student.
