  • Mental health resources

    Posted by Laura Bodek on 3/19/2021
    Has your student been struggling with stress, anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, behavior changes, school performance, or other concerns during the pandemic? Supportive counseling service referrals are available through WCPSS. This involves providing support, listening to individuals, and helping them develop solutions to issues presented. Each WCPSS student is entitled to 6 free sessions (regardless of insurance) with a partner supportive counseling agency. Services provided in English and Spanish. If interested, reach out to your grade level school counselor.

    The counselors also wanted to remind you that we host lunch groups every M/W/F.  The google meet code can be found in the grade level google classrooms. This is a great opportunity to connect with other students.
