Offering support following recent events in the media

The Wiseburn counseling team offers support and resources for students and families.

In Wiseburn USD, we remain committed to ensuring a safe, welcoming, and positive learning environment in each of our schools. This includes ensuring all have the support they need. In light of the recent news of mass shootings, incidents of state violence against communities of color such as with Tyre Nichols, and other reports, we have compiled resources and links to support our students and families.

We understand that what is happening in the news may impact students, staff, and families. Children may have questions, and/or feel the need to talk about what they have seen. Below, find resources that may be applicable to recent media coverage of local and national incidents.

Please know that counselors are available to meet with students and staff. If your student needs assistance, please contact our CARE Team here or the Dana Middle School Counselors Team here. In addition to school-based counseling services for students and families, WUSD partners with Care Solace. Care Solace is a complimentary and confidential service provided to students, staff, and their families by WUSD. Care Solace’s team is available 24/7/365 and can support you in any language. If you would like to use Care Solace to help you find a provider, please do one of the following:

Information on individual treatment providers was gathered by Care Solace based on criteria such as geographic proximity, whether the provider accepts the authorized user’s insurance, and whether the provider is accepting new patients. WUSD does not recommend, endorse, promote, or refer to any of the individual treatment providers.

In addition, if you or someone else needs emergency help, please utilize the following: 

  • Call 911 and request a Crisis Intervention Trained (C.I.T.) response 
  • Go to the closest emergency room for support 
  • Call the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline by dialing 988

In short, we are here to support you and your family in any way we can. Our hearts and thoughts are with the families and communities impacted by recent and distressing local and national events. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
