COVID-19 update from Mrs G
I am available Monday-Friday via email and loopmail and will do my best to answer messages within 24 hours. I am not monitoring my voicemail while away from school.
I will offer recurring online conferences / Q&A sessions (group setting, so please be mindful that these won't be the right setting for confidential conversations)
for students only, all grades, on Wednesdays from 11am-12pm - please join here:
for parents only, all grades, on Fridays from 12:45pm-2:15pm (my usual 'Coffee & Cookies with Mrs G' time) - please join here:
Soon I will also be posting online resources and suggestions on how to use this time to get ahead on your Career readiness plans that will be grade-specific. I will send these via loopmail to students and via regular email to families, as well as post them on this website under this page or the Guidance page. They will include online resources that I will update as I collect more information.
I have been very actively monitoring college admissions chat rooms and forums and will bring the most up-to-date information to you as I collect it - but please be reassured that the whole country is working together to ensure that our high-schoolers will have the same chance at a great education as everyone else in the past. Although a lot of things are evolving on a daily (hourly?) basis, it is all done in a very mindful and positive fashion, and plans are coming together.
The College and Career Center, located in Room 28, provides resources for students and parents in their explorations of post-high school opportunities. We are staffed by one full-time CUHSD employee - Mrs Nathalie Goricanec, our College and Career Specialist, and many parent volunteers and are open every day from 8:30am until 3 or 4pm (hours vary). Our volunteers assist students in locating information regarding in- and out-of-state colleges and universities, in finding SAT and ACT dates and registration information, in discovering scholarship and financial aid opportunities, and by answering questions about the college preparation and application processes. We have dozens of books available for check out including current SAT study guides and popular college guidebooks like the Insider's Guide to the Colleges, the Fiske Guide and the 379 Best Colleges among many others. We also provide resources for students who may be looking at vocational and job opportunities after high school.
We encourage students of all grade levels and their parents to take advantage of our offerings.
