Counseling Update

Counselors are working from home and are still here to support our students. We miss seeing our students! Please contact us if you have questions or want to check in. 

DVC summer classes:  Diablo Valley College (DVC) published a schedule of summer classes. It looks like they are preparing to offer all summer classes online. If your student is looking to take a college course for enrichment purposes, it could be a good opportunity. Students need to apply to DVC online ahead of time. Check back with DVC after May 4 for a paperless concurrent enrollment process.

Transcripts Students can still request official transcripts on the webstore here. Our registrar is processing requests regularly. Unofficial transcripts can be requested from our registrar or a counselor.  

We want to remind you of some valuable community resources: 

  • For non-life threatening mental health support: Contra Costa Crisis Center. Call 211  or text HOPE to 20121 available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for mental health needs.  
  • www.211cc.org can help you reach other community resources. 
  • In the event of a mental health emergency, please contact 911.  

As a reminder, here are the counselor assignments and emails.  Counselors prefer using the auhsdschools.org email but School Loop messages are also fine.
