Be Understanding of Yourself and Others!
This year is new for everyone. Be understanding of yourself and those around you, because this semester is uncharted territory for you, your family, your friends, your classmates, your teachers, and the staff at your schools. Allow yourself to feel mixed emotions about this process. That’s okay!
Maybe you’ve found yourself in a situation where some of your friends are in a different cohort than you are. This can be difficult, but make sure you stay in touch with them! Just like it was helpful during the Safer at Home order and isolation, using technology to call, video chat, text, and communicate with your friends and family will help make getting back to school feel a little less difficult.
Make sure to stay up-to-date with us, too! We’ll be sharing more tips throughout this week, and make sure to keep an eye on Facebook and Instagram for @TheGreeleyDreamTeam for more updates!
