Family/Student Social & Emotional Help

Dear CWMS students and families:
We know these are difficult and trying times for everyone. We wanted to reach-out and let you know that we are here to support you and your student. Please feel free to reach out or have your student reach out to us via email ([email protected] – Becky Old or [email protected] – Kristy Crooks).  
If there is an urgent need over winter break, please use the district’s online reporting system since this will ensure the swiftest response to your need or concern. (https://www.publicschoolworks.com/SHL/studentReport.php?di=683&dia=byp65 )
Additionally, if you feel your student is experiencing a mental health crisis, please call the 24-hour Nationwide Children’s hotline at (614)-722-1800 for assistance and guidance. 
Listed below are some resources that you or your student may find helpful during this season:
Student Guide to learning from home: CLICK HERE
Well-Being Activity Board for Middle School Students: CLICK HERE
Edutopia: A parent’s guide to Social-Emotional Learning CLICK HERE
Screenagers: Excellent parent resource for topics such as Digital citizenship, anxiety, and screen time. CLICK HERE
Anxiety and Depression Association of America’s mental health apps list: (a list of apps that could be used to support your student’s mental health. Please carefully read about the app before downloading to your student’s personal device).  For many parents, working outside of the home all day while your student is home and struggling with managing their emotions as well as online learning can be overwhelming. These apps can help your child track negative thoughts, engage in relaxation exercises, and provide positive ways for them to deal with all of the changes in life right now in a user-friendly, digital format.  https://adaa.org/finding-help/mobile-apps 
Take Care,
