Welcome to the Heritage Heights' Counselor Corner
IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO FAMILIES
Everyday life has changed and will continue to change, often with little notice. Now that schools are closed due to the COVID- 19 virus, we all struggle and adjust. Now more than ever children may need additional social and emotional support. While we are supposed to socially isolate ourselves to prevent the virus from spreading, we don’t need to emotionally isolate ourselves.
Please understand I am here to support you. Please don't hesitate to contact me. Also, the Sweet Home Elementary Counselors have created the Elementary Counselors Resource Page to link families to a variety of resources that promote health and wellness. It is a great source of information.
