Tips, Lessons, and Resources from FOES Student Services
First things, first...
We will be posting tips, quick lessons and resources here so you can access what you need, when you need it.
Mostly, this is unchartered territory for us all and we are just trying to get through each day together. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us by whatever means you are used to doing so, and don't be afraid to email or call. We are checking our emails often and our office phones now work from our personal telephones. If you are more comfortable reaching out to your teacher but feel like you need to talk to a counselor or social worker, let him or her know and they will get you in touch with us.
We love and miss you all! Stay safe, stay well, and remember to wash your hands.

Internet Safety (A Viewpoint from Mrs. Thornton)
If you feel that someone is using the internet to bully you, make someone aware as soon as possible. Do not friend people you do not know and most importantly, do not engage in conversations with people that are strangers. Furthermore, it is equally important to treat people with respect-- use your manners, treat interactions with compassion, and if you have nothing nice to say or share, scroll on!
Also, keep in mind, that sometimes we just need a break from social media and the internet... get in the practice of turning off the screens every so often... get outside, get some fresh air, just maintain social isolation rules!
If you have questions, concerns, or need to talk through a situation, please do not hesitate to reach out.
