    A Letter from

    Guidance Counselor,
    Ms. Potter:

    "Although I miss seeing the Whitesville Central School students on a daily basis, I want to remind you that I am available via epotter@whitesvillesd.org or 607-281-7084, (the school cell phone), Monday through Friday from 7:45 – 3:15. With our children being home, and many feeling as though we have been forced into isolation, it is of the utmost importance to take the time to check in with ourselves and our loved ones regarding mental wellness. With this having been said, I am including some social emotional learning (SEL) resources that were shared with me that might be helpful for both you and your children’s social emotional learning. I hope to be able to help our WCS families cope during this time of added stress and anxiety, and thus, encourage you to explore these resources. I have found them beneficial and hope you might as well." - Ms. Potter, WCS Guidance Counselor

    With schools temporarily closed to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, families must juggle work, homeschooling children, and new levels of stress and anxiety.  
    This is a scary, uncertain time for everyone so, focus on what you can control.  
    It will help calm fears, manage stress and help children self-regulate their behavior.
