The Role of Families

Social Emotional Wellbeing

As we continue to adjust to the unknowns surrounding the pandemic, it is important that we continue to focus on our own and our children's mental health. The uncertainty may cause some to feel a bit of anxiety or fear. Teachers and staff remain devoted to making sure both students and families are aware of the procedures and safety protocols to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Listed below are some resources that may be helpful:
  • Fear and anxiety are somewhat common in crisis situations. This resource can help lead some discussion with your child around how to deal with fear.
  • Continue to be mindful of how you talk about going to school. The words you use can either heighten or reduce your child's stress, fear or anxiety. Try to stay calm and be positive to help increase their outlook and offer time for them to talk about their concerns and/or questions.
  • Talk with your child and encourage the different mitigation strategies they can practice that will help keep them safe. Explain social distancing, the why behind wearing a mask and hand washing. 
  • If your child experiences an exposure to COVID-19, this guide can assist you in supporting them.
  • As always, we are here to support you and help make this a successful year. Please reach out to your child's school counselor if you have concerns or questions. 

Whole Child Supports

  • Students and families were surveyed at the start of the school year to identify ways the school buildings could better support students and parents. 
  • Results from the survey have been used to provide parents with support trainings, student group supports, and individual student and family supports.
  • Teachers will continue to implement social and emotional lessons to provide additional opportunities for connection, feelings expression and ways to manage difficult emotions.
  • School counselors will also be available to all students for individual and group supports for students who may benefit from their service. 

Race Relations

It is important to understand the impact of systemic racism and xenophobia in the context of COVID-19. We want all students to feel identity safe within HSE Schools and we do not condone discrimination within our school environments, including virtual spaces.
