Adjusting to Another Unique Return to School
Adjusting to Another Unique Return to School

Hi Laurence Community! While the return to school is likely an exciting time, it can also be very overwhelming and stressful for students and families alike. With ongoing change comes inconsistency and unpredictability, which, as I noted in a previous post, can make it hard to manage even the smallest of things. So, as I did for our previous return to school in person, I wanted to pass along some relevant articles, strategies, and support below that you can review on your own time. Hopefully these resources will help this process feel more manageable and go more smoothly.

In addition, I'll be resuming my Parent/Caregiver Drop-In Office Hours over Zoom! For this year, it'll be every Tuesday school is in session from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. I'll be opening my virtual door starting September 21st, as that'll give everyone a chance to settle into the school routine (if you'd like to meet before the 21st, please feel free to email me and we can set up a separate time). Similar to before, I'll meet with parents/caregivers on a first come, first serve basis, and I'll have folks wait in the virtual waiting room until it's their turn. On the occasion a lot of parents/caregivers show up at the same time and/or on the same day, I want to thank you in advance for your patience and ask that you be mindful of everyone's time and try to keep our meeting to about 15 minutes. If we need more time, we'll schedule a follow up meeting. The zoom information can be accessed through the school calendar or by clicking this link
