We Are Here To Help

Northwest ISD Guidance & Counseling

Welcome! As we work to navigate through this difficult and uncertain time, Northwest ISD will continue to invest in the social and emotional well-being of our students and staff and will assist NISD parents/guardians in promoting the positive well-being of the family. On this site, you will find helpful videos, tips, activities, and links to websites to help guide and support NISD families through this time. Our goal is to support the holistic well-being of our students during the COVID-19 crisis.

Should you desire one-on-one assistance for your child during this time, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's school counselor via e-mail. With your permission, your child's campus counselor may provide one-on-one support for your student via phone or an online videoconferencing platform called Zoom. If mental health concerns are critical and need urgent attention, you may dial 911 or access external crisis intervention through local resources. Please remember, we are here to help.

How To Talk To Kids About The Coronavirus

Coronavirus Info For Kids

Northwest ISD is in the second year of implementing a greater focus on social-emotional learning (SEL). This school year, helping our educators understand SEL has been a priority. We believe SEL starts with the adults first and modeling good social-emotional skills for our young people is a must. During a time like this, our social-emotional skills could not be more important, and ironically in NISD, the SEL focus of March is Personal Well-Being. On this site, we hope you will peruse the SEL suggestions for elementary students, middle/high school students, or even for adults. The personal well-being of our educators, students, parents, and community members matter. Social-emotional health is up to me. It's up to you. It's up to all of us.
