PISD Counselors Communicating with Families


As your school counselors, we want to make sure you are doing well and staying safe. We hope this material helps provide ways to help young people reduce, manage, and cope with the fears, worries and anxieties that might be provoked by this health crisis. At the same time, we hope these resources will continue to develop the social and emotional skills they will need for managing and coping with future life challenges.

In coming days, district Counselors will be providing social-emotional lessons for students. Some have already been posting challenges and messages on their campus Facebook pages, so be sure to follow them there, as well as checking back here, on the district website.

We pray each of you is staying safe and healthy. We want to reassure you that even though we are not physically available, you can still reach out to us via email. Please take this time to reflect and recharge...it is our hope the resources here help you do just that. We hope to see you soon!
