Food and Support During School Closure

Food and Support During School Closure
Dear Central Cougar Family:

As we enter this unprecedented, extended break from school, please know that we are here to support you and provide ongoing assistance. Specifically, we will be available via email, phone, and in-person to ensure that you have the support necessary to positively accomplish each day.

If you and/or your family could benefit from additional food and/or hygiene supplies, they will be available for pickup or delivery every other day beginning Wednesday, 3/18/20 and continuing with the schedule of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday pickups or deliveries. Please communicate in advance to ensure that someone is present in the main office when you arrive for pickup or to schedule your delivery time. The main number at Central is (618) 526-4578 and the direct email contact is: rketchum@centralcougars.org.

If you are having difficulty with any other aspect of the day, we also have resources available and can provide a contact for your needs. More specifically, some students may feel additional stress and anxiety during this period of uncertainty. It is important that students reach out to someone when needed. Central’s counselors will be checking their email on a regular basis if you need to contact them. Miss Lohman: tlohman@centralcougars.org or Mrs. Jones: wjones@centralcougars.org . You can also reach out to one of our student LifeSavers if you would prefer contacting a peer. Our general email is lifesavers@centralcougars.org . Please remember that when feeling isolated that actually talking to someone on the phone or in person is the best medicine. Reach out to your friends and family.

If you feel as if you need to speak to someone other than family and friends or are experiencing a medical/mental health emergency:

Crisis Text Line: text "home" to 741-741

National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255

911 or visit your nearest hospital emergency room if you can get there safely

All the Best,

Cougar Crisis Response Team
