Dear Bayberry Parents and Guardians,


I am here to support you during this difficult time. I am available to schedule phone conversations with parents and caregivers during regular school hours to offer support and guidance. 
 

I've provided you with some helpful links to use with your children to help manage stress or anxiety at this difficult time of social distancing. Students in grades 3 and 4 may be more aware of what is going on in our world and every child handles stress differently.  If you have an anxious child who is aware of what is going on and has questions, I've attached some helpful information for you to look at below.  Communication with children is very important as well as prevention, but for the anxious child who already has a full plate, sometimes less is more. Please reach out to me with any questions or social/emotional support you may need so we can establish a convenient time to connect. 

                                                                                          Warmest Regards, 
                                                                                          Mrs. Kara Fleming
