QE Students and Families,
I hope that this message finds you, and those you care about, healthy. I know that having this amount of time off of school is a big change, and we're all working together to navigate this new reality.
With this change comes a set of unique challenges. I want to reach out and remind you that, as your school counselor, I continue to be here to support you.
Please remember that you can contact me at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or concerns. I continue to check my email multiple times a day, Monday through Friday.
Additionally, I'll be continuing to update this website with information and activities throughout our time out of school.
Students - Below is a series of 25 activities that you can do, at home, during this time, to continue your discussion and thinking on many of the topics we have covered, so far this year!
Parents and Guardians - Below is a resource that includes tips on how to talk to kids about COVID-19
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with anything you need! Students - I miss you SO MUCH!
