Ms. Erin, K-2 School counselor

Dear Rice family,
    These past few weeks have been different in many ways. Your daily schedules have changed, emotional changes with added stress and now learning looks different for your child. You are in a unique empowering position to be there and comfort your child at this unprecedented time. Your child is looking to you for guidance and support. When you are at your best, you will be better able to help your child learn, grow, and thrive.
During these emotional times, please know that I am here to help you navigate these conversations so you do not feel alone. In addition please reach out to your support systems and connect with family and friends. Focus more on things that are in your control: strengthening relationships with family and community, modeling and structuring the best learning environment for your child, and staying positive and hopeful. Take this as an opportunity to be kind to each other and yourself. Remember that we are all in this together so please reach out to me if you need any resources for your family or email pandemicinfo@smsd.us . I check my email daily and will connect with you as soon as I am able. I also have office hours M-Th from 3:00-4:00 and Fridays 8:00-11:00 and 3:00-4:00 for personalized Zoom meetings to talk more with you or your child. 
For more connections to resources for your young Bubbler please check out the subpage: K-2 Resources for COVID-19   You can also click on the below link to watch a Sesame street clip that highlights your role as a caring adult during this time. Small things that add up to big things to help comfort your child.

                                       You Matter Most

Be well and stay safe,
