HSLPS VIRTUAL CALMING ROOM
We are operating in uncharted territory right now and many things are still unknown. Ms. Polanco wants you to know that your feelings are valid, no matter what they are.
You might feel scared, confused, overwhelmed, angry, alone, grateful, or completely calm. You might feel many things throughout the day or all at once, like being upset that an event was cancelled, but happy that you can wear pajamas all day.
Your feelings are normal; the situation is not.
Don't forget to breathe.
Virtual Calming Room is a place for students, families and staff to find tools and strategies for managing emotions and feelings and building our resilience during this pandemic .Hopefully these tools will provide helpful outlets and practices for when life is overwhelming.
-Ms. Polanco, HSLPS's Bilingual School Social Worker is here to support you!
