Frequently Asked Questions:How does a student meet with his/her school counselor?OFHS counselors have an open door policy for students -- however, sometimes we are in meetings, parent conferences, conducting seminars, testing, etc. If a student comes to visit us and we are unavailable at that moment, the student should fill out the Request to See Your Counselor slip to make an appointment. These slips are available in the Guidance Lobby and Student Services. Students can drop the request into the mailbox that is attached to their counselor’s door. The counselor will call each student down to the office for a meeting as quickly as possible.
How do I arrange a parent/teacher conference?
Many times questions can be answered and concerns can be resolved as easily as emailing the teacher or by requesting a phone conference with the teacher. Using your FOCUS ID and password, parents can see current grades, assignment grades, attendance and click a box to quickly email your student's teacher. After an email correspondence or phone call has been made, if there are further concerns or questions, please contact your student's assigned clerk to set up a conference time. Depending on the concern, the clerk will set up a time for a conference which will include the teacher, school counselor and/or administrator.
