    Dearest families,

    With the closing of school, it can be scary and alarming. We want you to know that we are in this together.  By working together, we can reduce the worry that surrounds the virus. Together is better. We will do everything we can to provide you with care and support even outside of a typical school environment. Here are some of the ways that the School Counseling Program will support you at home. 

    Visit our Social Emotional Learning webpage here for many resources to help you through this difficult time.  The webpage includes videos, websites, activities, stories, songs, and discussion ideas for you, your children and family.  In addition, the webpage provides links to social/emotional learning that can take place right at home. Please be aware the webpage is a work in progress, so check back for new information.

    Finally, we are offering the opportunity for you or your child to talk with one of the Counseling Team during normal school hours. This can be through email, Google Hangouts, or another medium arranged between you and the chosen counselor. Our emails are  ftelesco@salemcsd.org  lhansen@salemcsd.org and dzarzycki@salemcsd.org .

    Please contact us with any questions, concerns, or just to talk.  We are all in this together.

    Sincerely,

    Lisa Hanson
    School Psychologist
