INTERVENTION / EXTRA HELP RESOURCES
 
  • I'm having difficulty getting my child to sit down and do their work.. Do you have any resources to support?
Yes! As you are home working with your child, you may be facing challenges around behavior and motivating them to follow a schedule and/or get work done. Our district behavior team has created some resources for you to use and reference. Here is a flier that has basic information and a link on it to access a google padlet. On the padlet are multiple activities that you can do with your child, as well as resources, ideas and coaching on implementing behavior support systems. The team will continue to add to it as time goes on. If you cannot access the link via the flier try clicking below: https://padlet.com/jsinhbandith/jso7srchmw7
 
  • My Kids are missing and/or worried about their friends. How do we help them?
We suggest using Google hangouts to set-up some chat time.
 
  • I'm worried about my financial situation because I, or someone in my family, just lost their job. Do you have any resources to support finding work?
At INDY, we make an attempt to serve the whole child. This means that we understand that learning can't happen if basic needs aren't met. Therefore, we're trying our hardest to find resources to support you if you're in this situation.

You can all contact the United Way's Community Economic Relief Fund for assistance with bills, rent, and food by calling 1-866-211-9966 and providing your zip code.
 
  • I'm working a full time job and have multiple kids. I can't keep up with all the work that my teacher is sending. What can I do?
Reach out to your classroom teacher. Our focus during this time is to first and foremost make sure that families are supported. These are stressful times for everyone, and while it's important to ensure students keep up with their education, we can adjust based on your unique circumstances.

Calling all students and teachers!

We believe that stressful times like the COVID-19 outbreak are precisely when people need wellness practices the most, and we are committed to doing our part to help out.

In response to the many school closures taking place, we have made all of our apps completely free until July 1st for all students and teachers (K-12 and college) so that they can have access to wellness at home through the end of the semester.  Click on the link below to check  it out.
