Patrick Henry School Counseling 


Dear Students:

The counseling team at Patrick Henry wants to reach out to share some helpful information and to let you know that we are still thinking about you and are still available. We will be continuing to monitor educational progress. During this time of uncertainty, it is important to stay connected. The PH school counselors will be checking their emails daily, below are the emails of the school counseling department. If you wish to speak to your counselor please email with the best number to reach you, it is advised to not leave a voicemail on our office phone.

(School Counseling Coordinator) Amy Fiddler- aefiddler@rcps.info

(A-Bru) Jackie Wilmore- jwilmore@rcps.info

(Bry-Fl) Selinna Echavarria- sechavarria@rcps.info

(Fo-Jor) Kevonne Fields- kfields@rcps.info

(Jos-Mur) Michaella Bailey- mabailey@rcps.info

(Mus-Stac) Megan Lester- meganlester@rcps.info

(Stad-Z) Lindsay Coleman- llcoleman@rcps.info

 

While it is important to stay connected it will be crucial to physically distance ourselves right now and it is not a time to attend parties or sleepovers. What you can do is have real phone conversations, write letters/cards/emails, play board games with your family, spend time with your pets, and reach out to friends and loved ones via FaceTime or other video platforms that feature more authentic 1-1 connection.

Please keep in contact with outside providers and try to keep appointments for mental health treatment. Ask if your providers can do a “telehealth” or zoom video conference with you (Telehealth has been approved for providers to use during this time).

Be mindful of media intake; temporarily limit exposure to sources that increase anxiety, depression, loneliness, fear, and anger. Stick to content that helps you feel hopeful, happy, calm, connected, inspired and uplifted. Download Apps that can help you stay in good space: Virtual HopeBox, Mindshift and Super Slime Simulator.

Please Set a schedule, get dressed and try to move (exercise) every day. This will be important to keep some structure in your day. YouTube has some great (free) workouts including yoga and meditation. There are also free apps you can use. Heading outside and enjoy some sunshine, sunlight and fresh air can be extremely therapeutic, luckily we live in Virginia- forecasting temperatures in the 70s by the end of the week.

Have a place in your house that will be your regular workspace. This may help mimic the idea of going to school. Teachers will be communicating with you about work in their classes. If you are a student that has PLATO courses you already have access to those on your laptops.

Adjustments can be difficult, but we encourage you to implement the above tools to help during this time.

Students, parents, and guardians please reach out if you have questions and concerns.

Be well,

PH Counseling Staff.
