  1. Step 1. If your concern involves your student’s teacher or coach, please email that teacher or coach first.  You may request a conference or try to resolve the issue via email.   
  2. Step 2.  If after attempting to resolve your concern with the teacher or coach you feel your concern is not resolved, please contact the appropriate grade-level assistant principal. 
  3. Step 3.  If after attempting to resolve your concern first with the teacher and second with the appropriate grade-level assistant principal you feel your concern is not adequately addressed, please involve the principal, Mrs. Jeanne Greer.  Appointments may be made through the office manager, Mrs. Laurie McGuffey, laurie.mcguffey@hsv-k12.org.
