Supporting Students Transition to School
We recognize that our students, families, and staff have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in different ways, and that a number of our students may be attending school in-person for the first time in eighteen months. Others have been impacted by loss or grief. For some, the adjustment to face to face learning could present some mental health challenges, others may need additional academic support.
Each of our principals have been working with their school teams to welcome your students back to school! Careful attention and focus will be given to reestablishing school routines, relationships and supporting students wherever they are in this process. Our building Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) teams will continue to monitor all students to ensure the appropriate supports are implemented.
The following resources include strategies you may find helpful for supporting your child’s transition to school:
Part of building a strong community includes strong partnerships between families, our schools and community agencies (families and schools can’t do it all!) Given this, we are providing links to local agencies that provide a variety of programs and resources that can assist students who need a level of support beyond what the school and family can provide and/or to enhance the support they are currently receiving.
