    Additonal supports available to students:

    Coyote Help Hub daily for invited students from 8-8:20.  This is a time for students to chat with Mrs. Kennish and myself before the school day starts.  If you would like your child to participate in this please contact me.

    Coyote Help Hub, open link Tuesday-Friday from 12:30-1:15 for any student in 4th and 5th grade (other grades to possibly be added at a later point).  Coyote Help Hub in the afternoon offers social/emotional/mental health and school work support.  School work support is for answering questions, helping students get through an assignment or a supervised online space to complete work, it is not a teaching/re-teaching of a lesson.  Students may access the Coyote Help Hub through a link in their homeroom class or by contacting me via student email accounts.

    This information is provided to parents and guardians to understand the procedures for individual counseling during remote learning:

    • The school counselor may offer counseling periodically or for a short period of time.  If continual, more in-depth counseling is needed, the school counselor will assist in connecting the family with an outside therapist or psychologist.
    • With virtual appointments, there is the possibility of technological glitches. Should this result in service interruptions, please end and restart the session. If we are unable to connect within 10 minutes, the school counselor will email student to reschedule.
    • There will be no recording or photos of any of the online sessions by either party.
    • The information your child shares will be confidential between the school counselor and student. Exceptions to confidentiality include student grants permission, mandatory reporting of child abuse, or danger to self or others. Regarding the latter, parent/guardian or emergency contact will be contacted immediately.
    • The student or parent/ guardian may choose to discontinue counseling at any time.
