01:11:26
We have seen a lot of somatic complaints this year as well!

01:12:02

Penny Howard
01:12:08
very close with school nurse

Nicole, would you look at the question in the Q&A. Is that addressed later in the presentation?
Kelsey Treadwell
01:13:41
I am a school nurse. I work extremely close with our counselor.
Tonya Sproles
01:14:39
The challenge of social distancing has really made it difficult to have some of those close activities such as playing with legos, drawing together, etc.
Nicole Fairchild
01:14:46
We'll end with the MTSS work she's really asking about tier one - so we'll get there but we wont have direct solutions - we need to hear from them and have them assess what they need
Tabbitha Crane
01:15:20
Yes! Outside is my safe space.
Martha Christie
01:17:05
I am seeing so much of this, especially with our virtual students!
Kortney Ricketts
01:22:36
I'm with only 9th graders, and my boys don't typically like to talk to me. So, my AP -as a male- has become their go to. It took me a while to not take that personally, but I learned that they need that male figure to feel comfortable.
Laura Turner
01:26:49
Bringing in the Elementary counselors, I found in a crisis where I went to the High School , my former students were so happy to see me and were very comfortable
Kortney Ricketts
01:27:44
Laura, I love that! I'd never thought of pulling counselors up!
Christy Young
01:28:48
Yes, Laura. Three years ago, we lost our Elementary Principal on November 1st. They called all of us over to the Elementary campus. The students really clung to their current building counselor and to the two of us at the Primary level.
Tonya Sproles
01:30:46
We address student needs as a team.
Kortney Ricketts
01:31:05
When I no longer feel comfortable in my abilities to help them, I refer to SBMH counseling.
Amanda Davis
01:31:22
Our district has a great working relationship with several outpatient mental health clinics. Usually, once we (myself, teachers, nurse, etc) identify they need more support, I get permission from the parent and send in the referral.
