I have questions about my child's schedule.  Who should I contact?

All questions about scheduling should be referred to the Guidance Department.  Guidance counselors will handle scheduling concerns based on students' last names.  Please ask to speak to the individual counselor who can handle your concern:

  • Counselor (Last Names Db-Jon):  Mr. Tyrone Graves

  • Counselor (Last Names Jos-P):  Mrs. Noelle Cash

  • Counselor (Last Names Q-Z):  Ms. Kristen Anderson

Who should I contact if I want to resolve an issue that involves my child?

If you have an issue that you do not feel your child's guidance counselor can resolve, please feel free to contact an administrator who might best be able to help.  If your child is in the eighth grade, please contact Ms. Lyndsay Kimbro.  If your child is in the ninth grade, please contact Mrs. Karyn Jackson.  Each administrator can be contacted through email by clicking on their name, or by calling the school at (804) 733-2730.

My child wants to get involved with an athletic team.  What do I need to know?

First, please make sure that your child has a completed physical form.  Please contact the coach of the athletic team that your child is interested in joining for answers to specific questions.  If you are not sure who you need to contact about a specific athletic team, you may contact the county's athletic director, Mr. Bruce Carroll for more information.

Is there an easy way to manage my child's lunch account?
