HOW DO I SEE MY GUIDANCE COUNSELOR UNDER OUR NEW SOCIAL DISTANCING POLICIES?

    • If a student would like to meet with their Guidance Counselor, they will need to make an appointment via email or come into the Guidance Office and use your counselors appointment books to schedule a time.

    • Mr. Howards's email(last name A-K) is mhoward@wocsd.org

    • Ms. Anderswon-Wormwood's email(last name L-Z) is sanderson-wormwood@wocsd.org

    • Masks are required in the Guidance Office as well all other school spaces.

    • There will be only 2-3 students at a time allowed in the waiting area inside the Guidance Office. We will have additional space just outside of our office, with students socially distanced, 3 feet apart.

WHAT WILL COLLEGE VISITS LOOK LIKE THIS YEAR FOR SENIORS?

    • There will be both in-person & virtual visits with college reps this fall!

    • We will be utilizing Naviance for our students to schedule virtual visits with college reps.

    • Students will sign-up through Naviance, and they will receive weekly emails notifying them of colleges who will be hosting visits in the coming week. Student will need to be signed-up 2 days in advance. If there are no students signed-up 2 days prior, the in-person visit will be cancelled.
