Mental Health and Community Resources during school closure


Concern over the new virus can make children and families anxious.  While there is uncertainty about the spread of the disease in the US, acknowledging the level of concern in any family member is appropriate.  The resources below will help you help children cope with anxiety by providing accurate prevention information and facts without causing undue alarm.School counselors are the first point of contact for any academic, personal, or social-emotional concerns. 

Any FCPS parent may schedule a 30-minute phone consultation with a school psychologist or school social worker, for either themselves or their middle or high school student.

This consultation provides guidance for parents on how to support their student’s emotional well-being during their time away from school.
