Reno High School Counseling Department


    Our office is closed for the summer. We understand you may have some questions, many of which can be answered on our website. Please check this site thoroughly BEFORE emailing your counselor. 

    SCHOOL REOPENING PLAN: Due to COVID and school closures, there are many questions out there. We understand there may be some concerns about regular school operations and returning in the fall. The Washoe County School District is diligently working to provide a safe system for the next school year. When the district makes decisions regarding this, we know just as the public does so, unfortunately, we do not have any insight as to what is planned for the fall. Please refer to the WCSD Reopening Plan website for the most up-to-date information.

    CONTACTING YOUR COUNSELOR: Counselors may be contacted via email. Emails are checked periodically, not daily, as we are also enjoying our time off and recharging for the new school year. Please be patient in anticipating a return email. Individual email addresses can be found under the Counselor link. The counseling department welcomes Mr. Matt Albrecht to the staff as Mr. Cowen has retired. 

    FINAL TRANSCRIPTS- Please click on the quick link providing instructions on how to order an official transcript. All transcripts must be ordered through ScribOrder. Counselors, or the Registrar, cannot send any transcripts. 

    EXTENDED STUDIES PE over the summer will not take place this summer.

    We wanted to pay special recognition to Mr. Cowen who has retired at the close of the 2019-2020 school year. We wish him the very best in the next chapter of his life and will miss him very much. Thank you for everything you have contributed to the parents, students, teachers, and staff, and especially the RHS Counseling team over the many years. You will always be family to us!
