If you’re reading this message, it means that you’re part of our CVCHS community. Our community is bonded through our shared experience of being homebound during COVID-19. These are truly unprecedented times and we are all navigating these circumstances to the best of our abilities.
Times of stress and hardship provide opportunities for us to show up as our highest selves. We can learn new strategies for self-care as worry creeps in and low mood looms. When our family members and friends doubt their ability to navigate the changing landscape of employment and education, we can inspire strength and persistence. Our dedicated team of counselors and administrators compiled a webpage of resources to remind us of our ability to navigate whatever comes our way. Whether you are doubting your own abilities or in need of an anchor to ground you, here are resources to guide you. We welcome additional tips, tools, and strategies to add to this page and encourage you to send them to us.

Anyone can refer a student to receive support by contacting a School Counselor.
As we navigate this difficult time in which so many individuals and communities are being impacted by COVID-19, Clayton Valley Charter High School is committed to supporting our community in a variety of ways. We are fortunate to have a team of experienced school counselors, a licensed marriage and family therapist, two school psychologists, and a school nurse. All are available via email and Google Hangouts to support our students.
All of the CVCHS Student Support Staff will be regularly checking their email. Please expect a response to your inquiries in one business day. If you would like to connect via Google Hangouts please email your counselor to set up a time.
We understand that you may have a variety of reactions including (but not limited to) fear, anxiety, stress, and confusion. However, there are many aspects of daily life that remain under your control, including how you take care of your emotional, social and physical well-being, and your ability to support and help your friends, family, and community.
Are you seriously concerned about a sudden shift in your teen’s mood, behavior, or school engagement? Do you feel at your wit’s end as a parent or guardian navigating this new terrain? If so, we have a family-based telehealth program that might be right for you. If you would like to be considered for this limited-space program, please complete the following form HERE.
Telehealth is not appropriate for emergencies. If you are concerned about you or your teen’s immediate safety, call 9-1-1.
