Bluevale Guidance Update
We are all facing challenging times as we navigate the impact of Covid-19 on our lives and future plans. As we are provided with updates and information from the Ministry of Education, we will be sure to share with Bluevale families both here and via our Google Classrooms for each grade. In addition, please follow us @bluevaleguidance on Instagram.
Fears and the unknown can cause stress and worry for all ages. Knights, use this time to get some exercise, connect with others via your devices and eat as healthfully as possible. Learn a new skill, draw, bake, cook, make a puzzle, play board games… the list goes on!! Please check out WRDSB@Home for many resources to support: Academics, Financial Need and overall Wellness.
If you are feeling overwhelmed and/or you are not coping well, speak immediately to your parents or a caring adult. Here are some resources to support Mental Health that are available online:

We miss you, Knights! Be safe and be well.
