Counselor's Corner

When the holidays aren't so happy, be sure to make time for yourself and allow yourself to feel what you're feeling. For many, the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, but for some, the holiday season is a reminder of loss, changes in the family dynamic, missing family or friends, or a feeling of uncertainty. If you're feeling down this holiday season, here are a few things you can do:

  • Talk to a friend or loved one
  • Remember, you're not alone
  • Do something you like
  • Try something new
  • Excercise¬†
  • Keep a routine - good sleeping habits
  • Get outside & enjoy the sunshine

By 6th grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school.  A student who misses 10% or more of their school days, which averages to just two days a month, for any reason, is considered chronically absent.

It is important that your child attends school. If you need help getting your child here or if you have questions about what you can do to increase your child's attendance, please reach out!
