We are here to Help
The Woodstock Academy’s Student Services Department is actively working to help address barriers that students are facing during eLearning. We want to ensure that our supports for and connection to our students and families remain strong in order to meet the needs of the community.
Providing opportunities for social/emotional support will be uniquely important during this time. We have included a brief selection of helpful resources below, but we know that many families may feel bombarded with resources at this time and may not know where to begin. If you would like to find your student more support or if your family needs help finding necessary resources, please reach out to our team for help at email@example.com.
While this continues to be a stressful and unpredictable time, please try to find comfort in the support of your community and reach out if there is anything we can do.
