High/Virtual School Social and Emotional Resources

Dear Students, Families and Staff,

We know that this time during the stay-at home order can lead to many different emotions/worries/up-and-downs. Now that the district has a plan to move forward with the trimester, utilizing distance learning, we know that will add to the stress for some students and their families.

Our hope is to help offer some coping skills and strategies to support you during this time. Each week the counseling office will send an email to all students, families and staff promoting a coping skill or healthy living strategy. For students that will be picking up packets, we will be giving you a hard copy of the information.

Also, we know that you may have many questions about the process of school moving forward. Or are experiencing situations at home that you need to talk to someone about. Or need help with any of the other things you come to the counseling office for. We are still here and willing to help in any way. Please email us and we will get back to you as soon as we are able.

Remember, the best way to take care of those you love, is to take care of yourself, too. During this stressful time, it is important that you do your best to treat yourself with kindness and compassion. As much as you can, try to: get adequate sleep, eat nutritious meals, build in both physical activity and moments of relaxation during the day, stay connected to sources of support, and reach out for help when you need it.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Take care!
