    • If you feel that your child’s attendance is inaccurate for a specific class, please reach out to the teacher directly with your questions
  • My student is unable to attend the Zoom class, what should I do?

School Clinic News

Health Treatment Plans

We are so pleased to be welcoming students back into the building with 'in-person' learning and look forward to helping them to achieve their best.  For those students who have pre-existing health conditions or are newly diagnosed, we wanted to provide you with current PWCS Health Treatment Plans for the school year 2020-21.

The Health Treatment Plans will need to be completed and signed by your Doctor and kept on file here at Colgan, along with any medications your Doctor deems necessary to provide for your student needs.  If your Doctor has authorized your student to be a 'Self-carry' for Epi-pens or inhalers, we would still like to request back-up medications to be kept in the Clinic, should your student need them. Please be reminded that students cannot bring in their own medications unless they are 'self-carry'.  All medications should be brought into the clinic by a Parent/Guardian during regular school hours.

For your convenience, below are Health Treatment Plans for you to take with you to your doctor.  Please select the ones that are appropriate for your student.

Seniors - Mid-Year Transcript to Colleges

Counselors will send mid-year transcripts to colleges for any senior who applied to a four-year college. Transcripts will be sent electronically beginning February 10.  Projected GPA and class ranks will reflect on the mid-year transcripts along with first semester grades. Students do not need to submit a new transcript request through Naviance if they’ve previously submitted an initial one.  Contact your counselor if you have specific questions.

Sharks and Minnows

Colgan’s Leadership class invites students to hang out on Zoom for 30 minutes to play games, foster relationships with new & current Colgan Sharks, and build community in this virtual school year.  Join Mrs. Beckman and her student leaders on Tuesdays & Thursdays each week for Sharks & Minnows, from 9:30-10am.  Email your school counselor for the zoom link.

Virtual FAFSA

Please join us for a virtual FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) 

    • Question & Answer session with Tomika Brown of the The College Place on January 28 @ 6pm

Parents and students will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the FAFSA and financial aid process. Directly afterward, you will have the opportunity to receive one-on-one support in completing the FAFSA. If you would like to submit your question(s) in advance, you can email them to Tomika Brown at tbrown@ecmc.org. 

*Reminder: Colgan Counselors have open office hours at multiple times each week. For each counselor's hours and zoom information, please see the announcement in the Colgan Counseling course in Canvas or email your counselor.
