REDDING, Calif. - As schools prepare for a full in-person return to class, they’re also getting ready for student stress.
The Enterprise Elementary School District will increase the number of school counselors in its district to help support students.
The school district will also provide a weekly social and emotional curriculum for its students.
Josh Allen told Action News Now he wants to be in the classroom and in school.
“I really enjoy being in school because I feel a lot more comfortable doing it because I get to be a lot more social,” said Allen, who will be in 8th grade this fall.
“I get to enjoy being with my teachers and distance learning is a lot more difficult.”
Several other families tell Action News Now their kids are not anxious about being back in the classroom. But one family said they do have concerns because their son is not yet vaccinated and is a special needs student.
The school district said it prioritizes healthy and nurturing relationships between staff and students and is eager to welcome them back to school.
