COVID-19 has made 2020 a year full of uncertainty and change. Many students and parents have shared the adjustment struggles that have accompanied the pandemic. This years’ changes have been uncomfortable, and while the message “we are all in this together” promotes solace, not all of us feel supported or connected. If your student is struggling during these unprecedented times, please reach out for support. Community resources are available for struggling families. You can reach me directly, or you can select the resources tab at the top of the page for additional supports. These resources offer food, clothing, and counseling services. Although I am your student’s school counselor, I am here to collaborate and problem-solve with parents and guardians to support your student and to help families in need. You are not alone in this! Let us know how we can support you.
I can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
