  • Mental health issues which accompany the COVID-19 pandemic have rapidly compounded public health concerns. Research assessing the mental health implications of COVID-19 has identified a heightened prevalence of depression and anxiety among children, which reflects the widespread effects of uncertainty and health-related fears. To support positive mental health,  SPS provides a wide variety of programs and resources that may be helpful to your family.

    • Counselors at every school will be accessible to students and families, in addition to regularly providing classroom lessons and discussions. 
    • Supports are also available through Burrell Behavioral Health, which provides case management, individual/family therapy and links students and parents to support services. Contact your school counselor for a referral. 
    • A Care Team at each school will help support students who are struggling with barriers like food insecurity, socioeconomic challenges or other concerns. 
    • The SPS Counseling Services website provides additional mental health supports and can be accessed here.
    • These supports are available for students, in both In-Person and Virtual Learning.
