Summer Update from the BHS Guidance Office

We hope you summer is going well. The start of the school year is fast approaching. The Guidance Department would like students and parents to be aware of some Guidance related changes in terms of staff and also some updated information in regard to schedules.

Guidance Personnel Changes:
Molly Leary returns for the 2011/2012 school year.

Leisel Smith will continue her leave of absence for the 2011/2012 school year. Her replacement will be Amanda Magnan. We are confident that Amanda will be ready to serve Mrs. Lesiel Smith’s caseload. Amanda worked in the Burlington High School Guidance office last school year

Chrissy Robinson is staying on board as our School Adjustment Counselor/ Social Worker. We are lucky to have this added resource to our Guidance services at BHS. Part of her role will include home visits, conducting group work with students and coordinating our new work study program.

Please note that due to re-structuring in the Guidance office many members of the class of 2013 have been assigned a different counselor. Please remember that your updated Guidance Counselor can be found in the upper right hand corner of your schedule.

The second round of schedules will be mailed out this week. The schedules include teacher name and room number for each class. Study hall room assignments will be given out the first day of school. The Guidance Office is still taking appointments the week of August 15th for incomplete schedules. Also the Guidance Office will be open the week of August 22nd for walk in appointments only. Please contact 781-270-1780 to schedule an appointment.
