RESOURCES FOR MENTAL HEALTH - SUMMER 2020

 

This following list of providers is designed to be a helpful resource to assist in finding mental health services for children, teens and their families in the Santa Cruz area.  This is not an exhaustive list of providers, as there are many other providers in the area.  You may want to check with your insurance carrier for a list of “preferred providers”, or for referral information, if needed.  Inclusion on this list does not indicate SLVUSD’s endorsement of an individual or agency, nor does it indicate that SLVUSD has verified the license or certification of any of the providers listed below.  The following are only suggestions for mental health service providers.

 
ATHLETIC SUMMER CONDITIONING INFORMATION
 
As conditions change in our community and restrictions slowly open up, the Department of Public Health has authorized the Santa Cruz County school districts to offer athletic conditioning options for high school students.
 
There are numerous restrictions and requirements that are mandatory. Some teams may not be able to offer "in person" conditioning this summer, as they cannot meet the strict guidelines prescribed by the State of California and Public Health. Coaches may choose to send students daily workouts that can be done from home to ensure that all students remain safe.
 
Smaller schools and districts like SLV and SV do not have the staffing or resources to manage many of the current requirements. All conditioning sessions will be voluntary for coaches and students. The SLVHS Athletic Director, Chris Coulson will be providing information to coaches, along with meeting times and training sessions updates. The coaching staff and district employees will make every effort to wear masks (when & where appropriate), maintain social distancing, and clean equipment and facilities. Coaches will provide specific information regarding each team to parents and students.
 
Thank you for understanding that Athletic Conditioning may not look the same as it has in the past. Teams may begin after July 6, 2020 with approval from the SLVHS Athletic Director. The Santa Cruz County Guidelines are provided below for your review.
 
PLEASE NOTE:  Information provided by Dr. Laurie Bruton, Superintendent, the Santa Cruz County Superintendent's (collectively), and Santa Cruz County Office of Education, has been moved to the Superintendent's page under Superintendent's Communication. All information from August 1st forward. If you have any questions, please contact the Superintendent's Office at 831-336-5194. Thank you!

MESSAGE FROM THE DISTRICT NURSE
 

Health Corner

by SLV Nurse Sarah

 

We recently learned that school will not be in session and continued learning will be in place until the earliest of May 6th, and possibly into summer. I understand that many families have supplied medications to their students' school sites and that refilling prescriptions may be difficult at this time. If you would like to schedule a time to pick up your students' medications, please contact me via my email below.

 

Like many of you, my family is trying to figure out our new schedule and routine with shelter in place and continued learning.  We have found it helps to set daily goals and have a school day schedule which is linked here to give you an example. As we familiarize ourselves with this new way of life, I wanted to offer a few ideas...

 

  • Be kind and gentle to yourself and others. Do what you can and be alright with it
  • Make that schedule for your family, routines and goals will help us stay grounded
  • Have fun with your family. Cook together, play board games, journal, do puzzles, play and listen to music, do art and read a lot!
  • Get outside! Go for walks, play games, spend time in the garden, get your Vitamin D
  • Get plenty of rest, have good hygiene (wash hands frequently), eat healthy foods

Please refer to the WHO and CDC for new updates and recommendations as the situation is evolving rapidly. Stay informed.
