Welcome to the HHS Guidance Department

 As a guidance department, our goal is to ensure every student has a plan to be successful by removing barriers to learning. We will work with every student to ensure they have the information needed to be successful after high school whether that be continuing their education through college, career training or apprenticeships.

The Crisis Text Line is a free, confidential service available 24/7 via text on mobile devices. Text the keyword “4hope” to 741 741 to be connected to a trained Crisis Counselor within 5 minutes. Any person may need help in coping with a stressful situation. Reach out by text to communicate with someone trained to listen and respond in a method that is private, secure and confidential.

 The Safer Ohio School Tip Line is a free safety resource available to all Ohio schools. Calls or texts to 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764). The tip line is an anonymous reporting system that accepts both calls and texts 24 hours-a-day. This tip line allows students and adults to anonymously share information with school officials and law enforcement about threats to student safety — whether that involves a threatened mass incident or harm to a single student. Things to report to the tip line include (but are not limited to): self-harm or suicidal sentiments, unusual/suspicious behavior of students or staff, bullying, withdrawn student behaviors, verbal or written threats observed toward students, faculty, or schools, hazing, weapon/suspicious devices on or near school ground, or any other school safety-related concerns.
