The GUIDE for Life is a special program from the Arkansas Department of Education that contains information on 5 principles.  Each principle represents a set of skills needed to thrive at home, school, on the job and in the community.  This 5 step process can help students achieve personal success.   You can also go to the counseling classroom in your child’s google classroom and click on the GUIDE for Life tab for more information and videos.

Talking to your child about the Coronavirus – 

https://s3.amazonaws.com/scschoolfiles/889/coronavirus_information_for_parents.pdf

Limit your children’s exposure to the media and remain calm about this issue with your children in order to help them address their fears.  I have had several children ask me about the Coronavirus over the past week – just curious about what it is and what it might mean for us.  Now that we are out of school, there is a temporary change to all of our schedules.  Answer any questions your children might have in a way that will not cause them to become fearful.  Stress the importance of washing hands properly.  Check out some of the tips above and enjoy your time together. 

If I can be of any assistance, I am available to answer any questions or help in any way.  Please do not hesitate to contact me.
