Student Support Message - 25 July 2020

Dear Diamond Bar High School Family,

 

During this current pandemic, our school support team would like to extend valuable information for additional resources and encouragement. We want you to know that you are not alone and that we are committed to continuing our services during this distanced time. We would like to welcome you to connect with us for any family and/or individual concerns, such as but not limited to, emotional or stress management from family loss or financial struggles. Please read below for information on how to reach one of our counselor or psychologist team members. We hope to provide you the references and support that you may need during this difficult time.

 

We want to share some options that you have for receiving the support you might need.  

Here’s a link to mindfulness techniques to help reduce stress and anxiety:

Your GLC’s and School Psychologists are available for you, as well.  Please feel free to email us with any concerns you might have.  Additionally, you are our eyes and ears as we want to support anyone who needs it.  If you have concerns about a friend, please let us know.
