The Counseling Department is excited to introduce our Counselor’s Corner. Every week we will post resources, tools, and techniques to support your child during our closure.
This week our focus is on how to educate your student on COVID 19. Concerned about your child receiving false information about COVID 19? Please visit the following site to read up on how to discuss COVID 19 with your child: https://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources-and-podcasts/school-climate-safety-and-crisis/health-crisis-resources/helping-children-cope-with-changes-resulting-from-covid-19
Healthy Habits It is important that we maintain healthy habits during this difficult time. Every week, we will provide you with a habit to focus on. This week’s healthy habit: Are you waking up and going to bed at the same time every day? Research shows us that maintaining a schedule keeps our bodies healthy.
Need to Talk? Should your child have questions, need assistance, or someone to talk to - counselors are available Monday - Friday from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. While some teachers may be utilizing video components, counselors are only available by email and phone at this time. If you or your child would like to speak to a counselor over the phone, please email your student’s counselor to schedule a time.

Message from Taneytown Library - If anyone needs a Wi-Fi hotspot for free internet access, the Taneytown branch library parking lot is available. To keep busy, families can also access books, movies, tv shows, magazines, and music, as well as access online databases, from the library's website: https://library.carr.org
If you do not have a library card to access these things, you can register for one below, and then pick up the physical card within 2 months from the date of registration (hopefully we'll be re-opened by then). The library is also offering a Spring Reading Challenge to encourage people of all ages to read. Information about that can also be found on the library's home page.https://catalog.carr.org/patronaccount/selfregister.aspx?ctx=17.1033.0.0.5
