Mental Well Being

Webster CSD is focused on building and maintaining positive relationships with students, families, and each other to support mental well being for all. We know that sometimes we all need extra support -- Webster CSD is here for you. Students and families should reach out to their school’s principal, assistant principal, or school counselor when needed. They can help you find resources and contacts to help. Students and families can find directions for contact information on the district website, webserschools.org. They can also access help by calling or texting the Safe School HelpLine, a unique, automated service that allows callers to confidentially and anonymously report a concern 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Call the Helpline at 1-800-4-1-VOICE ext. 359 (1-800-418-6423) or text the word “TIPS” to 614-426-0240. In Monroe County there is also a crisis support line that can assist with community resources - just call their LifeLine at 211. NY Project Hope also offers information and resources on coping with COVID at its website, nyprojecthope.org.

Frequently Asked Questions

The opening of schools for the 2021-22 year brought with it many questions. Webster CSD created a Fall 2021 School Opening - Frequently Asked Questions document in which we have answered many of the questions we have been asked. As more questions are posed, they will be added to the document, and where we can provide answers, we will.

Office of Mental Health Videos Help Parents, Students Prepare for Return to School

The New York State Office of Mental Health created a series of ‘Back to School 2021’ videos to assist and support parents, caregivers, and students as they prepared for the new school year. These YouTube videos address concerns from New Yorkers and offer tips for coping. For more information about the videos please follow this link, and to watch the videos please follow this link.

Opening Plan 2021-22

Webster CSD heard from many members of our school community regarding the best way forward to open our schools this past fall. We appreciate the time and effort that was taken to participate in our ThoughtExchanges. The overwhelming feedback from families and staff was to do whatever we can to open, and stay open, full-time and in-person. We value this input and have continued to review guidance from the New York State Education Department and the Monroe County Department of Public Health, along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics. The link below to the 2021-22 Webster CSD Opening Plan shares our plan to open fully, while taking into consideration the health and safety of all students and staff.
