The Guidance Department would like to welcome students and parents back to the new school year!  Please enjoy our Back to School Newsletter linked below and also on our webpage. Be sure to participate in our Career Cafe workshop interest survey. The survey is for students only and students should sign into their school Google account to complete. We appreciate your feedback.


The permission slip for the dance is attached below.  



School Loop is school-specific, so if you are new to the school, and had an account at a different CUSD school, you will still need to register for an account again through the new school’s website.  The link is on the homepage of the school’s website.  You will need your Student Perm ID Number and an email address to complete this process. 


School Loop is a different application to the Parent Portal.  It is available to middle and high school level parents and students only.   Parents are encouraged to use both applications.  Please refer to the Guidance webpage FAQ's for answers related to the difference between Parent Portal and School Loop.


The Parent Portal may be accessed at any time during the school year and parent and student accounts only need to be established once as they rollover with updated student data each year. Don’t have a portal account? Contact the school office for your child to request the information needed to create an account.


The Parent Portal is only accessible to parents of students in the current school year.  Information on obtaining transcripts for graduated students may be found on the CUSD website.


Please direct any additional questions to your school office. 


Small Group Counseling

Small Group Counseling



Small groups are offered to students to support and enhance the development of personal and social skills and to support and promote educational success.  Small groups provide not only additional social-emotional learning experiences but also allow the students a chance to belong, a chance to express themselves, and a chance to benefit from the support of group members.


Critical Information for Small Groups

  • Everything that is said/heard in group stays in group. It is CONFIDENTIAL. Only matters which indicate possible harm by or to a group participant will be reported to the appropriate persons.
  • Students MUST have parent permission to participate in small groups. Students will be working with the school counselor or school counselor intern during these groups and possibly individually.
  • Students can be referred to a group by anyone or selected for a group based on grades, GPA, attendance, discipline records, citizenship and/or work habits. 
  • If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the school counselor
