Updates from Counseling
We want you to know your child’s teachers, counselors, and administrators at Dimond are still here for you and your children. We echo the sentiments Dr. Bishop expressed in her community message sent out earlier, and are so sorry for the sacrifices this Class of 2020 has been forced to make. We understand that students are feeling very anxious right now and want you to know that we are still here for them. There is little consolation to the many losses they are experiencing of the end of their high school experience, but we want to do everything we can to help ease their anxiety about their post-high school plans.
We are still in the season of applications for both colleges and scholarships, and counselors are still available and willing to help with this process. Staff members can still write letters of recommendation, and if your student is in need of one, please have them email either their teacher or counselor with that request.
If your student is in need of an official transcript for a college application, please have them contact Carrie Smith Please have them include their student ID number and their birthdate with their request.
Counselors are also still able to process online applications that are completed through secure servers like the Common Application and Send.Edu if you need those as well.
Again, we understand that helping with these tasks cannot substitute for the interactions and events your student is missing. Please feel free to reach out to any of us individually if there is anything we can do to help your child as we navigate these uncharted waters together.
