  1. Can you tell me if an email will be sent out with a link to make appointments with school counselors and when that email will be sent out? This update says they will be available on Aug 1st but I want to know how we make the appointment because we leave town on Aug 2nd so we definitely need to make one for the 1st. Thanks, Laura Bikman

    1. Hi, Laura! You can access the counselors’ appointment calendars on our website under the Counseling tab.
