Ridge E. S. Counseling
Resources for Families
March 13, 2020

Dear Ridge Families:
We know there is much uncertainty right now, but we believe it is important for all of us to
take care of ourselves and our families. While we are away to ensure we are staying
physically healthy, we also want to make sure we are taking care of our mental and
emotional health. During this time, we understand many different feelings and thoughts can
arise. We want to provide resources to help support you and your families while we are
navigating this period away from Ridge Elem. Here are a few links to resources on how to talk to our students about the Coronavirus, how to deal with fear and anxiety, mindfulness
strategies, and coping skills.

Managing Fear and Anxiety During Health Pandemic
Video made for kids about the Coronavirus and How to talk to your young children about the virus
