Social and emotional resources during the school shutdown

Social Emotional Resources During School Shutdown

During the school shut down our school counselors, school social worker, and school psychologist worked together to comprise a list of helpful resources for parents and students during this stressful time.  Our school counselors, school social worker, and school psychologist want all Mayfield families and students to know that they are not alone during this time. Many of the articles will aid in giving your students peace of mind as well as suggestions on how to stay busy at home when your child is not working on schoolwork.  Also below you can find a list of mental health community resources and their phone numbers should your child be in a crisis while school is shutdown. Mrs. Bovee, Mrs. Farrell, Ms. Lozier, and Miss DiDomenico are available via email Monday-Friday 8:00 AM- 3:00 PM while the school is shut down if your child would like to reach out for support.
