So in Virginia, we are closed through the end of the year.

I'm finding that I am worrying about my frequent flyers, wondering about the ones who struggle at home, and not being able to check in on them. 😞 I have high schoolers, 8-12, and I just hope they are all doing okay. About 60% of my job is mental health, they come to talk to me. It is a rural area, and some of the kids don't have access to all the things they need. I have been in contact with our Principal, who basically advised not to stress out because I can't help it... but I can't help but worry a bit. Anybody else feeling at a loss right now?

Not sure how big your school is, and I gather it would be more difficult with your grade levels, but what about asking the teachers in your school if there are any families that have not been responding to them or ones they're worried about and reaching out to those families? I find in my elementary world, a lot of the time, if the teachers aren't getting through, a family will respond if I reach out. I am going to be sending out an email to my faculty this week to see if there are any families they feel particularly worried about. I likely won't call, but email those families to see if there is anything they are concerned about and then try to work with the family/teacher to help.

This is a great idea! We are a small school, 194 kids. That is definitely doable. I am friendly with our teachers, so I will reach out with an email tomorrow and ask. I want to check in on them without looking like a creeper. HA! Thanks for the idea! Take care!
