    COVID-19 Resources for Parents and Staff

    Parents can help mitigate the stress and possible anxiety by simply maintaining a consistent routine at home during school closures while adhering to 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. As adults, we may experience similar emotional reactions surrounding the current situation.
