Supporting Children and Families at Home During COVID-19

Tue. 04/28/2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected each individual and each family in a different way. Both children and adults are going through a range of emotions while families are juggling safety, schooling, routines, social interaction, financial burdens and so much more. School Psychologists Genevieve White and Leslie Eget share resources from The National Association of School Psychologists as well as childtrends.org to help support your child during this challenging time. Genevieve and Leslie will discuss emotional support as well executive functioning strategies for home schooling and routines. For presentation slides including a list of resources, click here.

REMOTE LEARNING: The faculty and staff at The Summit School have worked diligently to plan for, and deliver, an engaging remote learning experience. We chose an approach that enables us to provide instruction in a variety of ways and are working closely with our families to ensure a positive remote learning experience.

THE SUMMIT SCHOOL REMOTE LEARNING WEBSITE: We have launched a website that can be a “go to” resource for remote learning, a resource for teachers, parents and students to share ideas.  If there’s information you’re seeking and can’t find it on The Summit School Remote Learning Website – Summit Students Learn please contact us at  and we will get information posted as soon as possible.

Please stay healthy and safe.
