The current state of uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 may cause anxiety, especially for our students and their families. This difficult time may heighten existing symptoms associated with mental health challenges.
Parents can help relieve the stress and possible anxiety by simply maintaining a consistent routine during school closures while practicing social distancing guidelines as mandated by the CDC.
Please know it is normal for students/children to experience a rollercoaster of emotions that may occasionally be intense. Additionally, a stress response may manifest in different ways for students/children.
In an effort to provide your child with continuous school counseling supports during these challenging times, school counselors are available to provide student's with a familiar contact that can ease their stress. Due to orders related to school closures, teleconferencing will be available for the remainder of the current academic school year. Modes of communication will be provided via phone and/or virtual face-to-face sessions. School counselor's have sent a communication with office hours, email and phone number.
