Message from our Social Workers and School Psychologist

As we enter mid-May, we hope you are all doing well and starting to fall into a comfortable routine with E-Learning and practicing physical distancing. During this COVID-19 pandemic, we have found that an important part of our daily routine is practicing self-care. Self-care has become a popularized term in our society, but what it means is finding and using strategies/tools throughout your day as a way to take care of yourself - your physical, emotional, intellectual, personal, and spiritual - self. Self-care strategies can be quick and easy ways to connect yourself to the present moment, to take a mental break, and to take care of your needs before you help someone else.
