Northview has a full time school Social Worker, Mrs. Atieno Boyd, who is available to assist both students and families in times of needs. Understanding that the Middle Years are complicated for students and we are living in unprecedented times, here are some things that you can do to take care of yourself and your family:

  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Repeatedly hearing about the pandemic can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch or meditate. Exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep.
  • Take time to unwind. Play a family board game, paint, cook together, watch a movie.
  • Stay connected to others. Communicate with family and friends through apps like Facetime and Skype.
  • Try to keep up with regular routines. Create a schedule for learning activities, relaxing or fun activities.

Please know that Mental Health Professionals are here to help during this time. The National Alliance on Mental Health Helpline can be reached at (800) 950-NAMI. This helpline is accessible 24/7. Additionally, if you need assistance please reach out directly to Mrs. Boyd using the form below:
