Seniors
Many seniors have still not ordered official transcripts for college apps or updated their Naviance accounts. Students pay the $5 fee for official transcripts on the webstore. Mrs. Finn, the registrar, will process requests. Documents will be sent electronically through Naviance whenever possible. Please contact Mrs. Finn with questions. Students can review unofficial transcripts in Aeries.

Counselor Appointments
We love talking to our students! Email is the best way to reach us. Counselors have appointment slots for students and will email them a link for signing up. We are trying to reserve the limited slots outside of class time for students. Parents can schedule a time when students are in class.

Class Schedules
Students cannot start a new class after Monday, Aug 24. Students may still drop a class (depending on credits and remaining schedule) until the end of the first quarter.

Attention Seniors
Counselors will start meeting with seniors individually in September to talk about post-high school planning. We are also working with Ms. Reicher, from our College and Career Center, on a presentation for seniors and their families about the college application process and how we can help you. Stay tuned for that in early September.

Transcripts
For seniors ordering transcripts to be sent to colleges for applications, we will start processing those around September 15. We are updating the school profile information. To request a transcript for college apps, have your list of colleges updated on Naviance and pay the $5 fee for official transcripts on the webstore. Mrs. Finn, the registrar, will process requests. If you absolutely need an official transcript before then, contact Mrs. Finn. Students can review unofficial transcripts in Aeries.  

Counselor Assignments by Student Last Names: We will be posting links to calendars soon. In the meantime, email is the best way to reach us.

We hope our Dons are settling in and getting ready for our first week of Distance Learning starting tomorrow. As we mentioned last week, please note the slight adjustments to the counselor assignments. We had to adjust to make the distribution more even. We know it can be hard to shift, (hard for us, too!) but we hope this means better access for everyone. We will be posting links to calendars soon.  In the meantime, email is the best way to reach us.

Class Schedules
The schedule change request
form will be open until Friday, August 21. Students need to use their @auhsdschools.org to use the form. As always, the priority is fixing errors and everything is subject to space available. Students will be notified via email if there is a change. Please follow the schedule that is in Aeries. In the event that a change is made, Aeries is updated immediately. Canvas will update overnight. Students cannot start a new class after Monday, August 24. Students may still drop a class (depending on credits and remaining schedule) until the end of the first quarter.

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.

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.
