Additional Support Resources

Staff and teachers at STS recognize and appreciate that the challenges of physical isolation and remote learning have different impacts on different students. While many students are excited about the social connection and support offered by in-class learning, some will be anxious. Teachers and staff will work closely with families to support the social and emotional needs of our students as we transition back to in-person learning. Supports will be available from the school nurse, Elementary, Middle, and Senior School learning strategists as well as the school’s guidance counselor.

Parents are encouraged to reach out to their child’s teacher/advisor or the Division Principal for in-school support.
