During this time of remote learning, parents and students are facing unprecedented challenges with social-emotional health and positive well-being. These challenges can impact students’ ability to access the learning environment and experience success in their academic courses. PVPUSD has a collection of resources and supports available to families to support students during remote learning. We have put together a collection of mental health resources for parents which includes tips on how to talk with a child during crisis, parenting during school closures, and stress management for all ages.
PVPUSD continues to be a partner school district with South Bay Families Connected. This website provides parents and caregivers with a broad array of supports including trusted national resources, expert advice, and outstanding articles on various topics impacting our youth including managing technology, coping with stress and anxiety and dealing with grief and loss.
As part of our continuing parent education program, PVPUSD is proud to announce our winter series with Dr. Tyrone Howard, Talking with Your Children about Race and Racism. Dr. Howard is a nationally recognized UCLA researcher on race and culture and will focus on providing parents with strategies and resources to use when engaging in conversation with our children about race and racism in today’s world. Save the date for the first event in our series on January 14, 2021 at 6pm. See pvpusd.net for more details.
Finally, our PVPUSD school counselors, psychologists and student support specialists continue to be available to students and families during regular school hours. Students and families can go to their school website or click HERE to request an appointment. We encourage students and families who are experiencing any type of difficulty with academic engagement or personal mental health to reach out to their school site for support and assistance.
