School Board Decisions: Return to School

We will pick up a new group of students starting November 9. If you child qualifies, based on school assessments, you will be contacted by Tuesday, November 3.

Targeted Instruction Groups!

Targeted Instruction Groups have been going extremely well!

We are in the process of contacting families to bring in our 2nd group of students beginning November 9. Targeted Instruction Groups are decided based on assessment data.

Hello from the WWB School Based Clinic!

It’s that time of year again….flu season! We encourage you and your family to get a flu vaccine. There are many reasons to get a flu vaccine. Flu vaccination can reduce your risk of flu illness, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu. Even if you are vaccinated and still get sick, flu vaccine can reduce the severity of your illness. Our School Clinic has flu vaccines available for children up to 18 years old. Give us a call at (859)381-3172 if you would like your child to get a flu vaccine or have any questions. Here are some additional helpful tips to share with your family on how to prevent the flu and other contagious illnesses:

-Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

-Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or with your arm

-Try to stay away from others that are sick

-Stay home from work/school if you are sick until you feel better

-Encourage healthy habits such as getting enough sleep, eat healthy foods and getting exercise

Nahtahna Hering, LCSW

Greetings from your friendly clinic therapist, Nahtanha Hering, LCSW. I wanted to take the chance to reach out to all of you now that we have gotten a few weeks of virtual learning behind us. I know from working with some of my patients that many families and students are experiencing issues or stress from doing virtual learning, such as keeping kids focused and on task during the class sessions, getting the work completed, and dealing with emotional/behavioral issues in the home. If anyone has concerns about a specific child or family feel free to refer them to me. I would be happy to reach out to the family and discuss starting services. I am able to assist students with issues such as ADHD, depression, anxiety, and anger. I can also work with parents on developing good behavioral modification strategies to use in the home. Please reach out to the clinic if you have any questions or need to contact me. Thanks.

Virtual Meeting Norms!

Please review the Virtual Learning Norms with your scholar. We want every scholar to be successful during Distance Learning! A reminder that all students should be in dress code daily! Each day, we want every student to be ready for learning!

If your scholar is having trouble with any of the norms below, please contact your scholar's teacher to make them aware!
