Guidance 404

 Welcome to the Guidance Department at MDHS!


We are continuing to meet with both parents/guardians and students at this time, so please book appointments via TeachAssist:

​Please note that all Guidance Counsellors will be working from home until Wednesday, February 10th (or until the government instructs otherwise).  As a result, we will be calling parents/guardians (when necessary) with a "blocked" number.

If you have questions or concerns regarding your student's academics and/or well-being, we encourage you to reach out to your Guidance Counsellor.  The Guidance website is another great resource to stay updated on various items.
