MESSAGE FROM THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR
Dear Parents and Guardians,

As you know, media coverage of the corona virus is widespread, and both the global and national situations are rapidly evolving. The intent of this letter is to provide parents and guardians with tips to help your children continue learning at home. 

Stay in touch with your child’s teachers.

  • Many teachers at SRMS are offering lessons online (virtual learning). Review assignments from the teachers and help your child establish a reasonable pace for completing the work. 

  • If you face technology or connectivity issues, or if your child is having a hard time completing assignments, let the teachers know.

Consider the needs and adjustment required for your child’s age group .

  • The transition to being at home will be different for each child in your home: preschoolers, K-5, middle school students, and high school students will all have different expectations from their teachers. 

  • Talk to your child about expectations and how they are adjusting to learning at home versus at school.

Create a schedule and routine for learning at home.

  • Have consistent wakeup times and bedtimes, Monday through Friday.

  • Structure and schedule the day for learning each class subject, free time, meals and snacks, and physical activity.

  • Allow flexibility in the schedule—it’s okay to adapt based on your day however, many children benefit from consistency.

Help your child stay active.

  •  Encourage your child to play outdoors—it’s great for physical and mental health. Take a walk with your child or go on a bike ride.

  • Use indoor activity breaks (e.g., stretch breaks, dance breaks) throughout the day to help your child stay healthy and focused.

Help your child stay socially connected.

  • Reach out to friends and family via phone or video chats.

  • Write cards or letters to family members they may not be able to visit.

  •  I will continue to provide you with more helpful information but please contact me with any questions or concerns.
