September Newsletter


Welcome Back!

Welcome back Parents and Students,

It is hard to believe that we are beginning the 2020-2021 school year virtually. The MOHS Counseling team is working hard to provide you with all the same programs and services as we would in any other school year. To that end, we will be posting many materials here, on our website, and/or in the Guidance Google Classrooms.

Class of 2021 Guidance Google Classroom join code: brptpx2

Class of 2022 Guidance Google Classroom join code: fpcs4m7

Class of 2023 Guidance Google Classroom join code: e23lmbi

Class of 2024 Guidance Google Classroom join code: iwnlts6

We know this is a very uneasy time for you as we remain out of school. The current situation is throwing some hurdles in our way. We have confidence that all of us will get through this together. Please try to keep things in perspective. We realize many milestones are in question as we muddle through the Coronavirus Pandemic. Here's an interesting letter written to high school seniors by a teacher who also had his high school senior year impacted.

The Guidance Counselors are available and ready to begin assisting. Please click here to reach the Counselor Contact Information/Requesting an Appointment page.

We will be conducting an additional ADD/DROP period that will go until Friday, September 30, 2020.

Lastly, we will be updating this page throughout the year and posting information in the grade specific classrooms as programs and resources become available.

Remember that our counseling team is always here for you. We look forward to life returning to normal. Stay healthy and remember to get outside for exercise and mental clarity.

Sincerely,

Rob Feltmann & The MOHS Counseling Team
