A message to parents and caregivers about COVID-19

COVID-19 has changed life dramatically for all of us. Facing these uncertain times has resulted in a range of feelings and concerns. 
 
Like adults, our students are likely experiencing anxiety, frustration, sadness, loneliness, and loss while they miss routines, friends, athletics, and activities. They are trying to stay socially connected while being required to stay physically apart.
 
To help you and your family navigate these unprecedented times, we have posted resources below and on our website. Please share them with your student -- and remember to take care of yourself, too.
 
La Salle counselors are here to help you and your students with academics, forecasting, emotional well-being, and college planning. Please connect with us via Schoology and email to make an appointment for a call.
 
Please don’t hesitate to reach out. You and your student are in our thoughts and prayers.
 
Take care,
 
The La Salle Counseling Department
 
Be well!
