The following information should provide you with a better understanding of the role of our guidance personnel. The information will also help you support the work done with your advisor.
Class Schedules: Freshmen and any students new to DHS will be able to pick up a copy of their schedule at Orientation. All students will be given a copy of their schedules on the first day of school in homeroom. Lists of student names and homerooms will be posted throughout the campus on the first day of school.
Your child's cumulative records are housed in the Guidance Office. If you need to review anything in your child's folder, please call for an appointment to have someone review the contents with you. If you need copies of documents in your child's folder, please call ahead and we will try and have it ready for you to pick up or send it home with your child. If you request more than two copies, a charge will be assessed at five cents per copy. If you are transferring out of Dunnellon High to another school, we will forward all documents to your child's new school. Once you register at the new school, they will request the records.
*If you are a non-custodial parent who wishes to have copies of report cards or interim reports please send a self-addressed stamped business envelope to the Guidance Office and we will mail them home to you.
