Dear Parents and Students,
We are currently experiencing a global health crisis unlike any other we have experienced in recent history. As a result, Taylor ISD will be closed for a period of time. These closures are designed to slow the spread of COVID-19, but they can certainly impact us in significant ways.
Many of you may be experiencing increased stress or anxiety due to fears about:
-You or your loved ones health
-Providing childcare while schools are closed
-An economic downturn or lost wages
-Obtaining necessary products and supplies
-Being isolated from friends and family
Your counselors, teachers, and all staff miss you and care about you dearly. We will be working to continue providing you with resources during this uncertain time. We will be posting information that may be helpful to you in managing anxiety that you may experience. You can find this information here under the Counselor's Corner. Please know that increased anxiety under these circumstances is normal and you are not alone. If you or a loved one is experiencing a level of anxiety that is disruptive to your daily functioning, we encourage you to seek support.
Additionally, if you or a loved one are experiencing a mental health crisis, please seek help immediately. Some emergency resources are listed below.
