Freshmen Information

Welcome to the Class of 2024

Hello Freshmen!  

The Guidance Department would like to extend a warm welcome and let you know that your counselor is here for you during your transition into high school. The beginning of high school can be both exciting and, for some, perhaps a bit overwhelming. However, your class has the distinction of starting high school in the middle of a pandemic with a unique educational model that currently combines in person and distance learning. That is why we want to reinforce that support is here if or when you need it. Counselors are always available to you in the building or remotely by Google Meets, phone or email.

Here are some helpful tips to get you adjusted to freshman year:

  • Become familiar with the DHHS High School Web Site and the Guidance website. Both are loaded with helpful information that is updated regularly.
  • Become familiar with the DHHS Library Media Center website. While "in person" access to the LMC is currently limited, the website offers numerous links to great reads and helpful databases.
  • DHHS has numerous opportunities to get involved in clubs and activities. We encourage you to review the options and explore your interests.
  • Make an appointment to meet your guidance counselor during a study hall. This can easily be done through email. Counselor/student assignments are listed below. If you are unsure who your counselor is contact the guidance office.

Looking forward to a great year and we hope to see you soon!
