Counseling Responsive Services
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.
Seasonal Flu Information & Tips
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.
Talking to Children About Violence
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.
Important Safety Rules to Teach Children
The fact is, every responsible parent is concerned about their children's safety. At the same time, it is important for kids to socialize at a young age and be able to have a certain level of freedom to grow and develop independence. It's all about finding a healthy balance, which can be tough. While ideal, constantly keeping your eyes peeled on your kids may not always be plausible. The good news is, you can implement some basic safety rules for your children to abide by. This will help them become more aware of how they can protect themselves when you are not around.
