Summer Health & Wellbeing

Dear Families,
As we pack up our books from the 2020-2021 school year in the next few weeks, and start thinking about the much-needed summer break for our students (and us), we want to partner with you by sharing some resources.
Over the course of the school year we have engaged students in conversations and assemblies about a range of topics regarding mental health and physical well-being. You may have had some discussions at home about some of these sessions, including our assembly yesterday, which covered emotions in the time of Covid, and eating disorders. We know that these topics have been hard to face, and we have done our best to create safe spaces in which students can engage. That said, no format is perfect, and perfection is not what we are going for.
For us, we are unequivocally committed to care for our LREI high school students. We care so deeply about them. We care about their physical and mental health and well-being as much as we care about their academic successes, knowing just how intricately these are tied. And we are committed to providing learning opportunities, and information about support, even if this can be hard to hear. 
The impact of Covid on our teenagers is unmeasurable, and we want our kids to have all the support they can get. This summer is the perfect time to make space for health and well-being for high school students. We encourage you to help your students make thoughtful plans that help them find purpose and structure in their days. And if you need some help with ideas, don’t hesitate to reach out! Below are some resources that you might find useful if you are seeking specific emotional support. In the coming weeks we will also send information about summer reading options and fun summer activities in NYC.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if we can help in anyway. We are your partners in the hard work of caring for our teens in this time.
