If your family is experiencing difficulties at home, we would like to provide additional support at school. I understand that you are not always able to share details, and that's okay. If your child is coming to school after a difficult night, morning or weekend, please text "Handle with Care. to your child's team or me. Nothing else will be said or asked. This will let us know if your child needs extra time, patience, or help during the day. We are all in this together !!
