Dear Pine-Richland Families,
The holiday season is here and is always an exciting time of the year to celebrate with family and friends. For the past year and a half, some of our students, families, and staff have experienced challenges of loss, financial stress, sadness, and emotional distress. The holiday season will also look different for everyone this year. Typical holiday stress compounded with the impact of COVID-19 may cause a substantial increase in stress, anxiety, and depression.
Having extra time over the holiday break can be enjoyable, but it can also increase moments of social media exposure both positive and negative. We encourage you to engage in family-centered activities while also monitoring your child's social media activity.
The following is a list of resources along with links for your children, family, neighbors, and community members to provide extra support:
