The purpose of the responsive services component is to intervene on behalf of those students who immediate personal concerns or problems put their continued personal-social, career and/or educational development at risk. Some services are preventive: interventions with students who are on the brink of choosing an unhealthy or inappropriate solution to their problems or are unable to cope with a situation.
Wylie ISD monitors flu-like illness in students and staff daily. We strongly urge parents to keep their children home if they have any flu-like symptoms such as a fever greater than 100°F, sore throat, cough, body aches, vomiting or diarrhea until they are fever-free or without signs of a fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.
High profile acts of violence, particularly in schools, can confuse and frighten children who may feel in danger or worry that their friends or loved-ones are at risk. They will look to adults for information and guidance on how to react. Parents and school personnel can help children feel safe by establishing a sense of normalcy and security and talking with them about their fears.
