Counseling Info for School Closure

MARCH 25, 2020

Dear Families,

We hope that you are all doing well and staying healthy and safe. The CHS Counselors would like to provide continued support to both students and their families during these stressful and unsettling times. In the ensuing weeks, students will be hearing from the counselors via e-mail regarding ways in which they can manage the unexpected changes to their daily lives.

As always, we will also be available to students and parents via e-mail.  Please do not hesitate to reach out and stay in touch regarding any academic and/or social emotional questions or concerns that you may have. We are happy to assist in any way we can. Even if you don't know who to contact, you are always welcome to start with us!

Our hopes are that even though we may not be in the same building for the time being, we can still stay connected to everyone in our school community in a meaningful way.

Dear Parent and Guardians,

In the event that the Carmel Central School District closes due to the Coronavirus, our clinical team has assembled a counseling packet of activities that you may choose to complete at home. There are also internet resources that you might find useful at this time. The packets hopefully can be worked on independently, but some may require adult support. There are a range of resources that cover social-emotional learning areas.

Please understand that these are suggested activities for your child. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us via email at this time.

Please stay safe and be well. We encourage all parents to continue to check the Carmel Central School District website for any additional resources and updates on the Coronavirus.
