Recent events have caused a lot of uncertainty in our community. Our students are used to the familiarity of school, parents work schedules, after school activities, and other routines. As these routines are altered, many students feel additional anxiety. Please use these resources to aid your children with the information they need about the world at this time and some coping skills to help manage the uncertainty. If you are in need of additional resources, please contact Erin Howell, your School Counselor, at email@example.com
If you would like Ms. Howell to check in with your child, please fill out this form:
