Supporting Students with the Death of a Peer or Loved One

Jan 15, 2021

Dear BCSD Parents/Guardians,

The sadness and sense of loss that results from the death of someone close or a peer can significantly impact a student’s social and emotional health. For those who might be interested, we are offering a special opportunity to have a conversation about supporting students through bereavement. We are inviting our BCSD parents/guardians to attend a session at school on Tuesday, January 19th. This session will be facilitated by Sue Klingaman, LCSW, at the Robert Young Center.
