journalAs our school year is coming to an end, please reach out if you are in need of any additional resources through the summer. I would be happy to help get you in touch with agencies outside the school.  Resources below will continue to be available on this web page.  Please feel free to check out the virtual calming room.  It is not just for students.  

Please contact me if you feel your student would benefit from talking with me during this difficult time. Email is best to start. I can make time any day to chat with another student.  If you are struggling and needing extra support yourself, please reach out so we can get you in touch with services you may need.  I have updated my website to include resources about coping with COVID, Mental Health Support Services and County Resources. This may not be a complete list but should give you some additional information.
