Student Support Services

The Student Support Office (SSO) is a hub for activity throughout each day. It is a place for students to talk through a variety of adolescent issues and conflicts in the Mental Health Counselor’s adjoining office or with the Student Support Coordinator, among other staff and peer mentors. It is also a resting place where injured and sick students receive care, such as first aid, early sign out arrangements, cough drops, herbal tea and/or medication.

In the SSO, student computers for academics and a multi-use table with chairs are available for studying and eating, and there is a comfortable lounging area for conversation and relaxation too.

The SSO is also a place where students can find important reference materials, forms, and applications regarding:

  • Fundraising Information
  • Club Lunch Sales
  • Club Start Up
  • BART Teen Discount
  • Interscholastic Sports
  • P.E. Alternative
  • Work Permits
  • Student Handbooks
  • Weekly Block Schedule
  • Internships and Employment Binder

Lunch cards, student IDs, and student locker assistance are available upon request.
