Welcome

  • Welcome to the North Star Online School Counseling site

     

    I understand that the district closure will cause many questions and confusion.  Please know that I will continue to support you -- our students and families -- as best I can from a distance.

    For now, please know that these are my top priorities:

    • Your well-being– Please take this opportunity to practice healthy self-care.
      • Invest in learning new techniques to manage stress.
      • Finish overdue work so that you feel caught up. 
      • If you are interested in community resources, please see the resource link at the right for a list of available resources.
    • Your academics:
      • Stay connected to your teachers 
      • Continue working on classes that are done outside the school (i.e. TMCC Dual Credit through their preferred modality, BYU, Edgenuity, Job Experience, or Extended Studies)
        • Some of these programs may bring up questions- do not hesitate to contact me
      • Stay up to date and continue working so upon our return, you are on track and caught up
    • How you can contact your counselor:
    • Rest assured, all your questions will be answered!

     

    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 www.washoeschools.net .

  • BYU Courses and Finals

     

    Due to COVID-19, BYU is providing remote proctoring and also giving a free 90 day extension to all courses expiring from 3/9/20 to 5/16/20. This means that students will be able to request their exams up until their new expiration day. If a student’s exam expires, they will be able to request a new one. BYU recommends requesting the exam in the online format.

    BYU advises you to wait a few weeks before requesting your exam.

    If a student would like the option of remote proctoring, students should email testing at is_exam@byu.edu with the following information:

     

    Net ID

    First and last name

    Course enrolled in

    Deadline they are trying to meet 

    Date and time they would be available to take the exam online
