• In the event of an extended school closure, the CST will be working from home on a half day schedule. Email is the primary source of communication that the department will be utilizing.  CST members will be monitoring their email regularly during the working day. Parents/guardians who want to be contacted via an email different from what is in Realtime will have to use/provide that email.

  • Speech Therapy

    All speech therapists have been instructed to provide packets and/or online activities to students in an effort to continue to develop their speech and language skills. If your child has not received a packet or instructions on how to access the activities, please contact your child's speech therapist or case manager. In addition, all speech therapists will be reviewing and assessing their caseloads upon returning to school to determine if additional time or sessions are warranted.

    Counseling
