Navigating the Return to Campus: Tips, Expectations, and Answers

PiE and CASSY (Counseling and Support Services for Youth) held webinars with information on how best to navigate the return to campus. Many of our students have spent very little or no time on campus this past year and it will take some adjustment to being back. Even those who were back on campus may need some assistance after being away for the summer.

CASSY’s licensed professional therapists explained what to expect in the first weeks of school and provided tips on how best to support our children. At the end of the session there was a Q&A for parents who had additional questions. We recorded the sessions (links are below). There are some technical glitches and imperfections, but we thought you’d appreciate the information nonetheless!
