1. The Exploris School Counselor Corner
During these uncertain times, lots of information is everywhere on the Internet about COVID-19 and what to do and where to go. It can be very overwhelming to find what you are looking for. We created a site to help families navigate family resources and social/emotional support during this time. You can click on the link above or access it from The Exploris Website under: Student Services
Please reach out to us directly by email for questions:
Michelle Duncan: michelled@exploris.org
Lori Mauro: lmauro@exploris.org
Please note we will be setting up counseling support to students via online- Stay tuned to the counselor page for details.

2. Online Learning-  Thank you!   
Thank you to our outstanding faculty for their quick planning and communication as we all learned how to navigate online learning last week! This will be our first full week of online learning so hopefully we will all begin to settle into a routine. Please reach out to your Crew teacher with any questions or concerns, and be sure to check your emails.
