BEST Program

Hello BEST Families!


We hope you and your students are staying safe and healthy during this challenging time. I wanted to send you a personal message letting you know that myself and the BEST staff are here to support you and your students in any way we can. I really miss greeting each of their smiling faces at the cafeteria door every day, but we are working hard to reconnect with them through our distance instruction plan. Last week we set up our BEST Google Classroom and 54 students have already joined and started reconnecting! If your student was part of BEST but has not joined, please encourage them to accept the invite from last week as we would love to have them take part. On the Classroom we have been posting discussion questions and some fun activities to help keep your students connected and engaged. Next week we will start holding weekly Zoom Office Hours each Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:45pm-4:45pm, and hope to see your students “live” during that time. We will be offering homework and academic support as well as more fun enrichment activities


Please note that taking part in any of our distance instruction is completely optional and will not impact your child’s enrollment in the program now or in the fall.

Thank you for having your student be a part of BEST and please do not hesitate to contact me directly with any questions or concerns you may have.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Information

Parents and students may have questions about the spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Concern over this new virus can make children and families anxious. Talking with your kids calmly and reassuringly and providing accurate prevention information and facts can help them cope with anxiety. The National Association of School Psychologists and National Association of School Nurses have provided suggestions for talking with children about COVID-19. We hope you may find this helpful.
