Hurricane Irma

Children and teenagers can become anxious when their routines are disrupted by natural disasters such as a hurricane. Parents should try to address those fears in a factual, reassuring manner.  If you remain calm, your children will often follow your behavior.

While we wait for Hurricane Irma, there are resources available:

RB Stewart MS is a hurricane shelter.  Please evacuate if you are in Zone A or need a sturdy structure.

When school resumes, our counseling team will be available to help our students as we recover from the effects of Hurricane Irma.
