Where to go for help
Please follow the guidelines noted below when seeking help:
If I have a health problem The school nurse has your health
record from your elementary school. If a new health concern has developed
for you, if there is a change in your health from the previous school
year, or if you need routine medical care, please see the school nurse.
See the nurse at lunch, before, or after school. Any other time you must
have a pass from your teacher. The nurse's office is near the art room and
If I have been abused in any way see your counselor, teacher,
the nurse or any staff member. This is very important. Please do not delay.
We can help you!
If I am depressed, thinking of running away and/or
suicide see your counselor, a trusted teacher, administrator, or any staff
member. Depression is serious. We can connect you to many community
resources that can help you.
If I might have a problem with drugs or alcohol See
any administrator, the nurse, your counselor, a trusted teacher, or any
staff member. Clark has access to a variety of drug/alcohol counseling
programs. We can help you or get help for you.
If I need to request a mediation If you are having a hard time
resolving a conflict or getting along with someone, a mediation is a good
solution. Fill out a 'Request To See A Counselor' form and indicate who
else is involved. A counselor will set up the mediation as soon as possible,
and you will be pulled out of class to attend the mediation. In some cases,
the assistant principal will assist with a mediation if a conflict can be
resolved without the need for discipline.
If a student is really bothering me, attempt to solve the
problem by requesting a mediation or by asking a teacher or counselor
to help you. If this does not work, see a counselor, security or an administrator.
If another student is provoking and/or harassing you, seek help
immediately. The problem rarely goes away by itself and usually gets
If I need help with my school work See your teacher first.
This is extremely important! See your counselor if the teacher is not available,
or if the teacher is unable to help to your satisfaction.
If I need advice about my classes Fill out 'Request to see a
Counselor' form and see your counselor. Your counselor is the best person
to give you sound advice. If you need additional help after seeing your
counselor, see an administrator.
If I need to talk to someone about a personal problem
See your counselor, the nurse, one of your teachers or an administrator.
Please donā't wait; let us assist you.
If I am having trouble with a teacher Always try to solve
the problem with the teacher. However, if attempts to work through the
problem with the teacher are not successful, see your counselor. If a counselor
is not available, please fill out a 'Request to see a Counselor' form
at a later time. You will be called to the office soon. If it's an emergency,
see an administrator.
If I need resource materials for a class project See your
teacher first. If you need additional research/reference material, then go
to the library. Here you will find a wealth of resource materials and people
willing to help you find them.
If I have questions about sports or activities See the
Assistant Principal (front counter or in the office). Remember, you must
have a participation form for the sport and a current physical examination
form on file in the office before you are eligible to participate in sports.
The coaches can answer specific questions regarding individual sports.
If I have questions about my attendance See the attendance
secretary in the front office. It is your responsibility to clear any
concerns with attendance.
If I am having trouble with my locker
If I've lost an item Check lost and found in the back offices near
security and in the locker rooms. For small valuables like eye glasses,
jewelry, etc., check at the front desk. Fill out a loss/theft report form in

- Go directly to class - don't get a tardy over a jammed locker.
- Ask your teacher for a pass to go to the office for assistance.
If I've just moved, what bus do I ride Check at the front
counter. You will need to know the street location where you get on the
bus. Look for the route number of the bus making your stop.
If I need to purchase lunches or apply for Free/
reduced-price lunch See the lunchroom supervisor in the cafeteria
before school or during lunch. Free/reduced-price lunch applications
may picked up from the office, filled out and returned to the cafeteria
manager in the kitchen.
If I accidentally make a mess in the halls (this includes
broken glass, spills, etc.) Please notify the nearest teacher or come directly
to the office and see a custodian, secretary or administrator. We will have
it cleaned up and issue you a pass to your class. Please do not leave a mess for others to clean up.
If I need extra support with personal, home or school
issues contact your counselor who has a variety of information about
what is available.
