Important Dates and Events from the SHMS School Counseling
If you have questions for a specific teacher regarding a grade, please contact that teacher directly via phone or email. If you have questions for several teachers and feel a team conference would be helpful, please contact your child’s school counselor and they would be happy to arrange that meeting. ParentVUE is an excellent tool that can help you keep track of your child’s grades and assignments. If you have not received an activation code for accessing the system, please contact the school of your youngest child in the county.
