Staying ~ Well in SJASD!

May 14, 2020

Staying Well.jpgThe St. James-Assiniboia School Division (SJASD) is pleased to offer a confidential support line for Staying-Well to assist our school communities during the COVID-19 pandemic and the suspension of in-school classroom learning.  This support line is available to parents, caregivers, staff and of course, our students.

Please note, this is not a crisis line.  The SJASD helpline is an opportunity to ask questions, talk, and to be supported during the suspension of in-school classroom learning.  We commit to answering emails and phone messages in a timely manner; however, we cannot guarantee next day service.  Our Divisional team of experts in education and mental health are here to offer support on a wide variety of topics from now through June 26th

Here is just a sample of topics we can help with:

  • Connecting to the appropriate school support personnel
  • Connecting to the appropriate agencies
  • Supporting parents 
  • Supporting children with disabilities
  • Assisting with supporting basic needs
  • Coping with change
  • Accessing mental health information
  • Coping with stress and anxiety
  • Coping with feelings of depression (feeling stuck)
  • Managing technology                         
  • Staying active
  • Accessing government programs
  • Assistance in setting up routines
  • Accessing resources
  • Finding balance when supporting students learning at home   

All questions pertaining to classroom programming are to be directed to the appropriate classroom teacher.

To access SJASD's support line please send a confidential email including the question or concern you may have to ess@sjasd.ca If you do not have access to email, call 431-338-8463 and follow the instructions on the voicemail message.
