It's hard facing the unknown, none of us have had to go through anything like this before so we need to be there for each other. Be kind, take care of your family and friends, but take care of yourself as well. We will be adding a Google Classroom page.  Your teachers are sharing the Counseling Google classroom link on their pages and the code is twvfobx. You can reach out to us by email too.
