Resources from Pupil Services: Grief & Loss During the Holidays
The Pupil Services team has been hard at work providing resources and working to support our students, staff and families during this very difficult time. The parent surveys reveal the continued need for training and support in the area of mental and behavioral health. The team has developed a monthly training and resource sharing opportunity to all families and staff, and on Tuesday, November 17, the fourth parent/guardian training was provided in collaboration with Ashley Herr and Shelley Robbins, who are representatives from The Center for Loss and Bereavement. We thank the staff and parents who were able to attend virtually, and for those who could not, we are providing the resources discussed during the presentation. The presentation was timely and highlighted the concept of “loss” and “grief” not simply due to the passing of a loved one, but of the loss and grief that is being experienced due to the pandemic as it relates to traditions, and time with family, which can be difficult for both children and adults.
