    Counseling Crossroads
     
    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! At Heritage High School, our Counseling Department provides comprehensive services to all HHS students. We are here to support all students throughout their high school career by providing academic, college, career, and social-emotional counseling. 
     
    Each student is assigned to a counselor that represents their Small Learning Community (SLC). Students are encouraged to visit their SLC office before school, during lunch, or after school to speak with their counselor or to make an appointment.
     
    Parents and guardians may contact their student’s counselor by phone or e-mail. 
     
    **Please note that counselors will be working on change request forms through Friday August 9th and will notify students of approval/denial by sending a pass to their classrooms. 
     
    **Due to the large number of course request forms, counselors are unable to accommodate change requests made via phone or email.
