Well-Being and Mental Health

We acknowledge that many of our students, parents/guardians, staff and school communities are all experiencing uncertainty and worry about their health and safety, and that of their loved ones. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, leading to ongoing disruptions in our personal and professional lives, it is important to acknowledge these impacts and intentionally look for ways to maintain and support our collective mental health and well-being.

Parent/Caregiver Workshop Series

Parenting/Caregiving throughout COVID-19 restrictions has been challenging.  And certainly, this past year has amplified the necessary steps we need to take to address racism and protect our children’s mental health in the midst of racism and oppression.  To assist you, please consider joining one of our Parent/Caregiver Workshop Series events. Please see flyer below for registration details.

You matter and therefore your mental health and well-being matters.  We’ve created and gathered a variety of coping strategies and resources aimed to support the needs of students, parents/guardians and staff in the weeks and months ahead.
