Introducing TalkSpace - Free to ALL New York City Teens

"Teen mental health crisis is as complex as teens themselves, simple solutions don’t exist. But there’s one thing our therapists know for certain: “Teens are vividly clear in stating their wish for more support, attention, understanding—simply, ‘to have someone in their corner’ or ‘have their back’,”  says Elizabeth Keohan, LCSW-C, LICSW. “This is not ambiguous—teens say it routinely. Their wish amid frustrations is to be heard, but also for someone to take the time to understand."

'Tis the Season

The winter season coincides with an increase in viruses, stomach bugs and other illnesses within school communities.  If a student becomes ill during the school day, the school nurse will determine, based on the student’s symptoms and the nurse’s professional clinical judgement, if the student needs to go home. School nurses will work with school administrators and supervisors to ensure that students who are not well enough to stay in school are not sent back to class.  Review the link below for tips to stay healthy.

If your child will be absent, kindly email in the Attendance Office and your child's School Counselor 


La Temporada de Enfermarnos está Sobre Nosotros

La temporada de invierno coincide con un aumento de virus, virus estomacales y otras enfermedades dentro de las comunidades escolares. Si un estudiante se enferma durante el día escolar, la enfermera de la escuela determinará, basándose en los síntomas del estudiante y el juicio clínico profesional de la enfermera, si el estudiante necesita irse a casa. Las enfermeras escolares trabajarán con los administradores y supervisores escolares para garantizar que los estudiantes que no se encuentran lo suficientemente bien como para permanecer en la escuela no sean enviados de regreso a clase.  Revise el enlace a continuación para obtener consejos para mantenerse saludable.

Si su hijo estará ausente, comuníquese con  en la Oficina de Asistencia y la Consejero Escolar de su hijo.
