EHS Wellness Resources and Website
The EHS Counseling Office is pleased to announce that in collaboration with the EHS School Psychologists, Communities in Schools and other departments within the high school, we have put together the EHS Wellness Resources website. These resources that can be used by anyone at any time, and will be updated each month based on a topic or theme for that month. We encourage students, educators and families to utilize this resource and as always, we encourage students to reach out to their counselor or school psychologist if they are struggling.
Additionally, we created a sheet with talking points and tips for parents, as well as a COVID-19 related graphic, linked here, that can help to identify signs of struggle and with links to articles as resources for more information and how to help.
The counseling office is pleased to continue to offer the Naviance system to our students and their families. Naviance is the preferred postsecondary planning resource for EHS counselors. We encourage all families to utilize the resources found in Naviance. Students receive an introduction each school year on how to use and navigate Naviance Student.
