FSD Social Emotional Help-Line
The Fullerton School District is committed to supporting the social emotional needs of our students and families during the school closure. If your student is feeling isolated and withdrawn during this time of social distancing, anxious about the health of loved ones, or stressed by the disruption in their daily routine, they may benefit from speaking to one of our District counseling staff. An on-call mental health coordinator is available to link your student to a trusted professional or provide referrals for additional family resources and supports. Please call: 714-485-9940 for non-emergency or Social Emotional Referrals between the hours of 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., Monday - Friday.
Daily Social Emotional Learning Lessons for Students and Families
The Fullerton School District is proud to partner with Collaborative Learning Solutions to provide daily Social Emotional Learning (SEL) resources to families, free of charge.
The Daily Social-Emotional Learning lessons feature two daily lessons: one for elementary students and one for secondary students. Lessons teach the SEL skills needed to develop resiliency and combat the harmful effects of toxic stress and trauma. Each lesson includes a video clip, or other piece of media, and a three to five step lesson to enhance learning. Please visit one or more of these links to access the lessons:
It is our hope that these lessons help students, parents, families, and staff to continue to grow and develop the skills needed in order survive and thrive during this difficult time.
