PWPSD Update #6, August 20, 2020: Supports to help prepare students for school re-entry in September

On August 20, 2020, we emailed the following update to our parents and guardians to communicate the mental health supports available to our students – a vital element in the school re-entry process.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Wellness and well-being of students, staff and school communities is a priority of PWPSD's relaunch. In our sixth and final update to families, we are providing supports to help prepare students for school re-entry in September.

The most important thing to remember right now is that your children will be returning to the familiar, welcoming environment of their school, to teachers and staff who care for their well-being. We provide a range of supports and services to address students' physical, social and mental well-being. Our staff regularly attend sessions and complete further education to better support student mental health and wellness.
