Social & Emotional Health during E-Learning
As we lean into the core values of our school, we must remember that strong relationships, mentoring, and supporting student success is often achieved through mentoring and social connectedness. During this unprecedented time let’s look to check-in with each other. Offer each other patience, grace, and a little latitude as we find new rhythms. However, let’s also consider resources that can help us along this journey.
Classroom Teachers, Advisors, and School Counselor
Throughout this time of e-Learning, you can access our faculty/staff via the school directory. The Leadership Team and teachers can be reached by email or you can leave a voicemail (which is recorded as an audio file and forwarded to their email). As we further define our e-Learning schedule we will look for continued opportunities to connect with students and families.
Talk with Your Kids
We know parents are struggling to balance work, child care and self-care while keeping worries — both your children’s and your own — under control. You don’t have to do it alone. Check out resources from the Child Mind Institute dedicated to managing mental health, especially during COVID-19.
