Dear Abingdon Families,

We are here to support you and your children!  As we navigate this extended amount of time away from school amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to assure you that we remain dedicated to serving your family and providing for your child’s school counseling needs through alternative means. We recognize that this will be a stressful time for many families and many children. Students and families are likely to need counseling support. Virtual Counseling is a new experience for us, but we are committed to learn as we go. Check out our Counseling Resource tab for updated online resources.  We will continue to research creative ways to support your child as needed during this time. Yucky Bug by Julia Cook is one book that may help our children understand more about the COVID-19 and our global community helpers. Click on this YouTube link to listen to the read aloud.

Your Caring Counselors,

Ms. Mullinax, Ms. Delgado, & Ms. Butler
