As most of you have heard, Auburn City Schools will be moving to WebEx for our video conferencing tool. WebEx offers additional security for our students and faculty as a resource during our distance learning adventure. Here is a quick tutorial of how students will set up WebEx on their iPads.
Teachers and other school staff are using Schoology as a primary communication tool during the extended closure. Students should be checking Schoology’s updates and messages regularly during this time. Please call the school if there is a reason you cannot access Schoology.
The counseling team at Auburn Junior High School would like to extend our well wishes to each of your families in the coming weeks. We miss your students tremendously and hope to see all of their smiling faces very soon back at school.
During this unprecedented time in our country and our community, we want to continue to serve our families and students. While we don’t post grades or update Schoology pages as much as the teachers do, we wanted to reach out to let you know that we are still very much here ready to serve your families. We want to help your students through this time that can be riddled with anxiety and uncertainty.
There are many ways we as counselors can be contacted when needed during this time. First of all, please reach out by email to your student’s respective counselors (breakdown listed below). Also, students or parents can reach out to us via Schoology platform through the messaging tool. We will be checking our email and Schoology messages primarily during regular school hours. The following is a breakdown of the alphabet pertaining to student’s last name:
We have also compiled a list of various resources to best help your students cope with uncertainty, worrying, and feelings of disappointment. We will continue to send out more resources as we come by them. Please be sure to check out our twitter page (@AJHSCOUNSELORS) for regular updates and posting of resources!
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there is a specific need you have for your student or your family. We are here to be a support and want to reach out a helping hand during this difficult time!
