Social-Emotional/Study Tips

Deep breathing

  • Studies show regular deep breathing exercises help the brain, heart, and immune system
  • 7/11 Exercise: breathe in for 7 seconds, and out for 11 seconds, and repeat

Get dressed and ready for school - even on virtual days!

  • This can help put you in the mindset for school and get you ready for a productive day. It’s much harder to feel productive in PJ’s.

Social-Emotional Tip

  • At the end of every day, write down at least one thing that you are proud of that you did that day. It can be big, like completing a project, or something smaller. This can help with negative self-talk, and keep you in a healthy mindset going into the next day

p-ebt cards

Some families will be receiving Pandemic-EBT cards (P-EBT). The purpose of P-EBT is to provide food assistance to families with children who would have received free or reduced lunch while attending school but are not in school due to COVID-19 restrictions. This benefit is available only to families with children enrolled in an Indiana school, and were eligible for free or reduced lunch or the school is a Community Eligibility Provision participant. The student must have participated in virtual learning, was in quarantine, or was out of school due to illness for at least 5 consecutive school days, or schools had a delayed start or school closure due to COVID-19 of 5 consecutive days or more.

For more information on the P-EBT cards and to see if you qualify, please visit Pandemic-EBT.
