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.
Proctoring the FSA tests will affect counselor availability for the next 3 weeks (April – May).
Staff from all curriculum areas, electives, and special programs will be in the Commons to welcome you, provide information and goodies, answer questions, and assist with registration. At 6:30, the presentation will begin in the cafeteria on next year’s course offereings and will feature administration, the counseling department, AVID, and Infinity staff.
See you Thursday, March 9th at 6:00pm at RBSMS!
