    Dear Parents/Guardians and the Class of 2019,

    Greetings and Happy New Year from the Counseling Department!  This letter serves as a reminder to set up your junior conference via Google Calendar as soon as possible.  Each year the counselors meet with their 11th grade students to discuss college/career and post-secondary options.  Parents/guardians are invited to join in this junior conference.  Your student received a link, through their school email account on November 30.  This email link as well as follow up emails were sent to parent email addresses currently on file and to THE STUDENT’S SPFHS SCHOOL GMAIL ACCOUNT.

    Important tips to remember when signing up:

    • All appointments must be booked through the student’s Gmail account.  While finding the best available time for your appointment we ask that you be mindful of your student’s schedule when choosing your conference slot (AP Courses, VoTech, lunch periods etc…)

    • If you need to cancel an appointment please remember to choose the option #1 Delete and notify guests: This will remove the appointment and inform anyone participating in that particular appointment that it has been cancelled.

    • There are no conferences after 12:50. If you see that an appointment is showing on the calendar after this time, please contact your student’s counselor as soon as possible.  

    • The counseling office will confirm your appointment via email prior to the appointment date and time.

    • Remember to save all appointments and/or cancellations when using google calendar.  We will not be able to see the student’s name if the appointment is not saved.

    • If an appointment is not scheduled by Friday, January 19, an appointment will be scheduled for you and your student.

    If further assistance is required, please do not hesitate to contact the student’s counselor, or our Office Assistant, Mrs. Skoog at x3412.  

    We look forward to meeting with you and your student.
