Information for Existing Staff
There are a lot of things happening for BRSD staff right now. We're doing things differently than we ever expected. Many of us are working from home, providing service in ways we never thought we would. Others are experiencing temporary layoffs or reductions in hours.
It's more important than ever to take good care of ourselves. We hope the information on this page can help you do that, and also help ensure the students you support stay well, too.
These Working Alone Guidelines were initially developed to support BRSD staff when they are working outside of 'regular' school or office hours. With the current reality of many people working remotely, it is possible that there could be only one person at a school or office at any time. These guidelines can be applied: Working Alone Guidelines
The Mental Health Capacity Building team has modified a number of the classroom wellness activities they do with students, so they can be used by teachers, in an online format. These activities are intended to help students feel calm and supported as well as connected.
