    District Support:
    Continuity of support services remains important, even though our students are not physically attending school.  For students in need of mental health support, direct counseling support via phone and "virtual" appointments may be scheduled during regular school hours, on an as-needed or requested basis.  Families are encouraged to contact the building psychologist, social worker, or the student’s counselor.

    You may also email syossetsupport@syossetschools.org for assistance.
