A Message From Superintendent Tracy Wrend
With the return to school and ongoing media coverage regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we’d like to offer some tips and resources for talking to children about the Coronavirus. Experts recommend…
You can read more on talking to children about Coronavirus at childmind.org. You can access a comic, article and 3-minute listen with factual information about the Coronavirus, Just For Kids: A Comic Exploring The New Coronavirus, on NPR.org.
This is also an important time to pay attention to social-emotional wellness. Many of us may have concerns and worries, and some may feel anxious or experience stress as we read and hear news regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). These feelings are normal. Please review the resource Coping with Stress During Infectious Disease Outbreaks for tips regarding managing stress during this time.
If you or a loved one is having a hard time coping, consider reaching out for professional support. Contact your school counselor or one of the many community mental health supports, such as Lamoille County Mental Health at 802-888-5026 (802-888-8888 after hours) or the Behavioral Health & Wellness Center at 802-888-8320.
