Dear Wagner Families,
 
We hope that your family is doing well and staying safe.  
 
We are writing to provide an update about some of the social emotional supports that are available to you and your family.  We have created guidance google classrooms for each grade level.  We currently have mental health talk and chat lines listed here for students to access.  There are also a variety of apps that may be used if your family is interested in learning more about meditation and mindfulness.   As resources become available, we will be posting them in the guidance google classroom.  
 
We hope that you have been enjoying Wellness Wednesday.  The guidance department will continue to post a weekly activity that will focus on positive mental health.  These activities are optional for students, but we hope they provide a good learning opportunity for students who want to engage. Please be on the lookout for a meditation activity that will be uploaded tonight.  
 
We also wanted to take the time to provide our families with additional resources to both support yourself and to help you support your children.  Unfortunately, we are including bereavement resources because we know many members of our community have lost loved ones during this time.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you would like to talk or if you would like more specific supports.  Please see the links below.
