Reno High School Counseling Department

  • We understand that the district closure will cause many questions and confusion.  Please know that counselors will continue to support you -- our students and families -- as best we can from a distance.  For now, please know that these are our top priorities:

    • Your well-being– Please take this opportunity to practice healthy self-care.
      • Invest in learning new techniques to manage stress.
      • Finish make up work so that you feel caught up when we return. 
      • If you are interested in community resources, please see link at the bottom of this notice.
    • Your academics:
      • Stay connected to your teachers and school. Your 4th period teacher will be reaching out as well as department office hours for you to access
      • Continue working on classes that are done outside the school, if possible (i.e. TMCC Dual Credit through their preferred modality, BYU, Edgenuity, Job Experience, or Extended Studies)
        • Some of these programs may bring up questions- see “Other” bullet below
      • Stay up to date and continue working so upon our return, you are on track and caught up
    • How you can contact your counselor:
      • Email – we will work to answer your questions on email
      • Each counselor will have online office hours 
      • Rest assured, all your questions will be answered
      • Continue working on these classes as much as possible. If this is not an option (for example your place of work is closed) then do not worry about this. The district is working on how to proceed in this situation.
      • TMCC is currently working on their online permission form for next year’s classes. It will not be available until April 15th. 5-digit English codes for RHS are on the RHS Counseling webpage
      • BYU please see the April 1st update below 
      • Edgenuity- Mrs. Mann will be available via email. The program will allow you to work freely forward through the curriculum and you will also be able to take the final.
      • Extended Studies- PE credit is the largest issue. As of right now, the district is still working on a solution for this. You will be notified once we know how to proceed.

    The school district is doing their best to keep you informed and will continue to do so as more information becomes available on our district website . 

    For frequently asked questions regarding COVID 19, school activities and school closure related issues, more information is found at   A list of 2019 Community Resource Guide & Emergency resources can be found at We thank you for your patience at this unique and interesting time.


     In light of the new information about schools being closed until April 30th, the new process for students to order, take and complete their BYU course is as follows (information directly from BYU):

    The BYU testing department is now conducting online proctoring. Students need to request their final by emailing with the following information:

    • Net ID
    • First and last name
    • Course enrolled in
    • Deadline they are trying to meet (if you are a senior, make sure to mention you are a senior and need for graduation) RHS deadline of May 1st still stands for seniors and students who are taking BYU as part of their minimum load requirement should also finish the course and take the final via BYU due to the uncertainty of a definitive return date to school.
    • Date and time they would be available to take the exam online

    Recognizing that the rest of the country is in the same position and many students are utilizing BYU’s services, it is recommended that you make these arrangements to take your final ASAP. 

    While governors in other states have made the decision that students will not be returning to their school site this year, at this time, Governor Sisolak has indicated the plan is for Nevada students to return to school on May 1st and proceed forward with graduation ceremonies. We want to make sure all students are on track and ready for this to happen.

     We hope you are all well and staying safe. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.
