An Equitable Education for All

Sandy Radic-Oshiro
School Psychologist

This is Ms. Sandy, your school counselor. As you know, we are taking a break from school for some time just so that we can be sure everyone can stay healthy. I know some of you have questions and may even be a little unsure of what is happening. I want you to know that this will pass and we will be back at school. In the meantime, here are a few things you can do for yourself and your family.

  1. Stay healthy and practice good hygiene. Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze and wash your hands with soap and water.
  2. If it is pretty and warm outside, go out and play. Ride your bikes, play ball, anything to get some exercise.
  3. Work off some energy. Breathe in some fresh air. Take some deep breaths.
  4. Stay busy! Keep up with your schoolwork every day or read.
  5. Help around the house, do your chores. Help out without being asked, parents love that!
  6. Be kind to your family including brothers, sisters, moms, dads, grandmothers, grandfathers, cousins, etc. Kindness counts!
  7. Talk to your parents or guardians if you are worried about anything.
  8. Write a letter, or draw a picture for someone. Great time to practice your art skills and kindness.
  9. Play a board game or cards with your family. Have family time as much as possible.
  10. Lastly, don’t worry too much and just be a kid. Play, laugh, and be happy. If you would like to talk or check-in, please let me know.

Please let me know if you need anything…food, a check-in, some advice, etc.

Please feel free to write me, email me, and/or text or call me. (707) 834-2861. For parents and guardians, please let us know if you need anything. I have included an article for you about how to talk to your child about the COVID-19 situation. I would suggest limiting your exposure to the media and keep your anxiety in check.

We are in this together and we care for you greatly!

Ms. Sandy
