ASCA Guidelines on Coronavirus and Potential School Closings

Wed, Mar 11th 2020 09:00 am

As precautions against the COVID-19 Coronavirus have caused several colleges to shut down campuses, ASCA has provided guidelines about planning for a potential HS closure. To continue communicating with your students, ASCA recommendations include:

- "providing as much information on the school counseling website as possible," particularly related to mental health referrals. We have an extensive resource list on this site - at the upper right, click on "Student Resources" and then on the "Referrals" tab.

- when communicating with students, they advise, "Do not use your personal phones."
