Hillhurst Updates - March 20

Depending on age and individual circumstances, students will have very different reactions and understandings of all that is going on in our rapidly changing world.  Below are some resources that may be useful in helping your children understand what is happening. 

General Principles for Talking to Children About COVID - CBE.pdf 

Covid Social Story for Children.pdf 

Managing Anxiety and Stress - CBE.pdf 

WHO Helping Chidren Cope with Stress.pdf 

Children are now officially on spring break, so we encourage you and your family to do what works for you knowing that it won’t be the spring break any of us had planned.  If your children are asking for something to do, you may refer to the ideas shared by the Calgary Board of Education or use the ideas communicated via your child’s teacher. Hillhurst staff are going to take their spring break to refresh and when we return we expect to have more direction as to how schools should proceed.  We will communicate next steps as soon as possible after our March 30th professional development day.

Take care and stay healthy.
