Dear Parents/Guardians,

Our school counselors are committed to supporting all students at D.H.H.S.  We connect with our students individually, small groups settings, in the classroom and via google classroom. If you would like to connect with your child’s counselor, we are available by phone or email. On occasion, we also give updates in the PTO Meetings for parents/guardians. The best way for students to reach their counselor, is to stop by our offices! 

Your children's continue success is important to us.  Feel free to reach out at any time.

Thank you!
