Social Emotional Well-Being and Additional Resources

It is natural to feel stress, anxiety, grief, and worry during and after a disaster. Everyone reacts differently, and your own feelings will change over time. Notice and accept how you feel. Taking care of your emotional health during an emergency will help you think clearly and react to the urgent needs to protect yourself and your family. Self-care during an emergency will help your long-term healing (CDC). Please see the following resources for further information and support: Text HOME to 741741 to connect with a Crisis Counselor.

Survey for COVID-19 Planning

Currently there are no community cases of COVID-19 in Humboldt County or the surrounding counties. Nor are there any suspected cases affecting local schools. Our MUSD district is using this window of time to prepare should this status change. PLEASE COMPLETE A SEPARATE SURVEY FOR EACH OF YOUR CHILDREN WHO ATTEND OUR SCHOOLS. There is no current plan to cancel school. The information we gather from this survey will help us to plan for any short-term, partial, or complete shutdown should it become necessary. We are taking our lead from the Humboldt County Department of Public Health and at this time, they recommend focusing our efforts on maintaining clean environments, encouraging hygiene practices for all and for planning. Thank you for your help and partnership. And please...wash your hands!!
