Resources and Information

Welcome

The purpose of this newsletter is to provide all of our Military Connected Families with additional resources, information, and activities to help during this time of distance learning. This is a living document and will be updated frequently. If there are questions or concerns that you have that are not addressed in this newsletter please let us know. We will do our best to find/direct you to the best answers.


PWCS cares deeply about students’ emotional well-being during their time away from school. If a student is in need of emotional support during this time, please feel free to send an e-mail to studentsupportservices@pwcs.edu. A school mental health or health professional will answer and offer virtual support to students to the best of their ability. This e-mail is not to be used for emergency situations as it will not be monitored 24 hours a day. If a student is ever in an emergency situation he/she is encouraged to call 911 or utilize one of the resources listed below:
