Mental Health

Staying Healthy 
Extended breaks and cancelled plans can be stressful for all members of the family.  As we continue to navigate through this unique time, we want to reach out with some ideas to lesson stress, and some additional resources if you find yourself, or a family member needing more support. 
It is important to remember that many children do better with a regular routine, predictability, and activities to manage downtime built into their schedules.  Some examples of this include a set wake-up time, set screen time/ free time, and set academic/ skill-building time.  Creating schedules help not only create the predictability and structure that kids crave, but also helps to lessen the anxiety of the care-giver(s).   
Please continue to check your school’s website and Facebook pages for more tips and ideas for fun and meaningful activities for your families.  
As it relates to COVID-19, we will remain in contact with our partners at the Tri-County Health Department and the Colorado Department of Education, and we will keep you updated with new information as it becomes available.
