RCCSS Counseling Memo

March 16, 2020

Please be assured that the RCCSS counselors are available to help guide and assist families during this break. Robert Aberle and Steph Strand have their personal contact information in the directory and on the website, and they will respond to correspondence in a timely manner.

Here is a good link to information that parents should consider:  https://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources-and-podcasts/school-climate-safety-and-crisis/health-crisis-resources/talking-to-children-about-covid-19-(coronavirus)-a-parent-resource

We know that people tend to be on their best behavior during times of ritual and routine, and that stress can bring out some of the best and worst in us.  Modeling cues will be very important. Share openly with your kids in a calm manner and call if you need us. St. Thomas More, Pray For Us.
