What We Do

Cunha counselors track academic, personal/social, and college/career needs specific to middle school students. We provide individual and group counseling as well as coordinate various programs and services for students. A full list of these services is provided under our Menu of Counseling Resources.

Students are divided by the first letter of their last name which allows the counselor to follow students through their entire three years at Cunha.

All information shared in the Counseling Office is confidential which means that we do not share information with any outside parties including parents, teachers, or other students without permission. The only exception is if a student shares that he/she is thinking of harming themselves or others, or that someone is harming them in which case we are legally mandated to seek help for this student. Both phone numbers reach a confidential voice mail so that any message left will only be heard by the counselor that you called.



HMBHS Chromebook Take-Home Program, rolling out this coming school year!

 Dear Parents and (Future!) Students of Half Moon Bay High School,

 We have exciting news about technology in the classroom for our upcoming 2018-19 school year!

 Currently, Half Moon Bay High School has class sets of Chromebook laptop computers in a limited number of classrooms, so not every teacher has access to them, although by number there are about as many Chromebooks as there are students at the school. As a result we are changing this arrangement to one in which we check out to each and every student their very own Chromebook to be used throughout their time here at HMBHS.

 During Freshmen Orientation on August 13, our incoming 9th graders will each get a new Chromebook. The sophomores will get new ones as well, when school begins.

 Juniors and seniors will be given the ones currently in use. All students will check them out from the library.

 In order to make these internet-based laptops useful to all students, we have also received a grant for wireless hotspots that students without wireless access at home can check out,and which will work only with their school Chromebooks.

 As we are now looking to have to replace many of our oldest Chromebooks as it is, we would be looking at an equivalent annual expense going forward. This initiative allows us to distribute them more equitably,

 We will be requiring that students take their Chromebooks home and back to school again, charged and ready every day.

 And when they graduate? The Chromebooks are theirs to take with them, as the devices will be approaching the need to be replaced anyway. And after next year, each entering class will get a new set and so on.

We will be sending home material to educate parents and students about this exciting development via email, at registration, and in classrooms and events like Back to School Night. Included in this will be a Loan Agreement Form  which will require parent and student signatures at registration.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

¡El programa Chromebook para llevar a casa de la Preparatoria HMB, se lanzará este próximo año escolar!

 Estimados padres y (futuros) estudiantes de la Preparatoria Half Moon Bay,

¡Tenemos noticias emocionantes sobre la tecnología en el salón para nuestro próximo año escolar 2018-19!

Actualmente, la Preparatoria Half Moon Bay tiene conjuntos de computadoras portátiles Chromebook en un número limitado de salones de clase. Por lo que no todos los maestros tienen acceso a ellas, aunque hay Chromebooks como para todos los estudiantes en la escuela. Como resultado, estamos cambiando este arreglo a uno en el que verificamos que todos y cada uno de los estudiantes tengan su propio Chromebook para usar durante su tiempo aquí en la Preparatoria HMB.

Durante la orientación de estudiantes en el 9º grado el día 13 de agosto, ellos recibirán una Chromebook nueva. Los estudiantes en el 10º grado también recibirán Chrombooks nuevas cuando empiecen las clases.

 Los estudiantes en el 11º y 12º grado recibirán Chrombooks que ya han estado usando. Todos los estudiantes tendrán que pedirlas en la biblioteca.

Para poder hacer que las laptops que usan internet estén disponibles para todos los estudiantes, nosotros tenemos que recibir una beca para tener internet gratis, para que los estudiantes tengan acceso en la casa y puedan usar las Chromebooks.

 Como ahora tenemos que reemplazar muchas de nuestras Chromebook más antiguas, veremos un gasto anual equivalente en el futuro. Esta iniciativa nos permite distribuirlas de manera más equitativa.

Exigiremos que estudiantes lleven sus Chromebook a casa y de regreso a la escuela, cargadas y listas todos los días.

¿Y cuándo se gradúen? Las Chromebooks son para ellos, ya que los dispositivos se acercarán a la necesidad de ser reemplazados de todos modos. Y después del próximo año, cada clase entrante recibirá una Chromebook nueva y así sucesivamente.

 Vamos a enviar material a casa para educar a los padres y estudiantes sobre este desarrollo emocionante por correo electrónico, en el registro, y en los salones de clases y eventos como la Noche de Regreso a Clases.

 Incluido en esto habrá un Formulario de Acuerdo de Préstamo que requerirá firmas de padres y estudiantes en el momento del registro.

 Por favor, póngase en contacto conmigo si tiene alguna pregunta.
