Hello Whittier Families,
As we near the final three weeks of the school year, I have had many parents asking about what they can do or say to help their children with this transition. I have put together a brief PowerPoint to address closure with your children. This link will take you to Parent Resources and/or you can go to the sidebar and find it under Covid-19 Resources.
Please reach out if you have additional questions/concerns and /or need specific help with your child's situation.
All of us are experiencing a broad spectrum of feelings in response to the health crisis and that is completely normal. The essential piece is for children and adults to have a number of strategies that work. Coping methods are different and often change for all of us. Find some that work for you, as parents, and help your child make a list that works for them as well.
We care about you and are here to support you.
Be safe & stay healthy.
Can my family access social-emotional resources and support from our school remotely during the closure?
During the extended school closure, Social Emotional Learning resources are being made available to families by the Committee for Children (CFC), creators of the 2nd Step Program used in all elementary schools.
Here is a CFC resource page that families can access without an account. CFC will be adding information to this page.
Additionally, families can view/access lesson materials specific to their child’s grade by creating an account via https://www.secondstep.org/
Once you create an account, enter the activation code below for your child’s grade level.
