Talking to your Child

While we want to make sure that our families are informed and prepared, we know that this has affected our students in varying ways. Our counselors and staff members are available to address the concerns our students are sharing regarding Coronavirus.

Here are some steps you can take at home to address their concerns:
• Correct misinformation for them.
• Focus on what kids can do to keep themselves healthy.
• Manage your own catastrophic thinking.
• Don't dismiss their fears. Acknowledge that fear is healthy, and help them manage it appropriately.
• Preview changes or disruptions that may happen, like school closures.

Students with concerns and anxiety are encouraged to check-in with a teacher or counselor for support.
