The AP office near the StuCo store, formerly the attendance office, underwent renovations this summer, and now houses Mr. Contrares, Ms. Fields and Ms. Lass.

Counselors and assistant principals partnered together this school year to better serve students and parents. With the change, students can access their counselor and assistant principal in the same suite. Mr. Greg Owens, AP Intern, expects the change to provide better service and easier access to administrators for students and parents.

Putting students first is always the focus and providing better services to both students and parents is always our goal, and streamlining our locations should bring better accessibility to our students and parents,” Mr. Owens said.

A counselor and AP are now located on every floor and every part of the building, from the first-floor Fine Arts hallway to the third-floor AP suite, allowing students to have easy access to administrators, and for them to be visible throughout the school day. Ms. Dana Vorsino, lead counselor, hopes the change provides more accessibility to counselors and assistant principals.

We are hoping that it is easier to students and parents to take care of multiple school-related business items in one office,” Ms. Vorsino said. “It is also a great way for the counselor and AP to get to know our students and parents.”

The counseling center near the front stairwell now houses two assistant principals, two counselors, the student support counselor, the PEIMS clerk, registrar, testing coordinator and other administrative support staff. 

“We hope this provides more accessibility to the counselor and AP,” Ms. Vorsino said. “It has been an adjustment for the counselors and APs, as this is a new office arrangement for all of us.”

The move provides each counselor and AP with a dedicated secretary, as opposed to the one secretary who served all counselors last year. Though their office location may be different, students can still access their counselor by email or via Classlink

“Like any arrangement, there is always an adjustment period, however as a leadership team our focus is to provide the best service to both our parents and students,” Mr. Owens said. “Streamlining our offices better equips students and parents to have better access to both of their administrator and counselor in one location.”
