Coping with COVID-19

A Resource Guide for CCSD employees
How to cope effectively, manage stress and connect with others.
Fighting Depression - Naturally
Depression can drain your energy, leaving you empty and tired.  
Small Steps
  1. Meet yourself where you are.  Accept that where you’re at emotionally right now isn’t where you’ll always be.
  2. Let yourself feel the emotions – but don’t stay there.
  3. Ask yourself “is this a fact or a feeling?”.  Work at understanding that being negative isn’t always realistic or true.
  4. Practice positivity
  5. Do something you enjoy, i.e. read a great book, paint, go for a walk, listened to favorite (upbeat!) music
  6. Practice gratitude.  
  7. Establish a healthy sleeping routine.
  8. Be as kind to yourself as you would be to a friend going through the same tough times.

Dealing With Anxiety
To calm your mind and cut stress, try these self-care tips:
Powerful Coping
  1. Work on coping with your feelings, not avoiding them.
  2. Set-up a great sleep scenario.  Attend to temperature, bedding, possible interruptions & perhaps invest in background “music” such as gentle rain, surf or other sounds of nature.
  3. Ease up on caffeine and alcohol.
  4. Schedule your worry time.  Pick a time.  Give yourself 30 minutes.  Then let it go.
  5. Respect yourself, your feelings but don’t over-validate or focus on reinforcing anxiety – fear is a liar.
  6. Be determined to enjoy your life, your loved ones, your interests every day

Covid Information

Dear Parents/ Guardians and Community:
It remains important that we all do our part to keep your family, our students, staff and community safe.  We know that illness is more frequent in the winter and that is expected with COVID -19.  While we cannot change the fact that this pandemic is continuing, we have full control on what we do to try and change the trend. Living in a COVID-positive world requires discipline from all of us. In order for the rate of spread of COVID-19 to decrease so we can continue to keep our schools, businesses and churches open. It is time to DOUBLE DOWN on our COVID -19 safe practices!
Watch for symptoms of COVID-19:
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Chills
  • Loss of taste or smell

Stay Home
  • Avoid unnecessary travel.
  • Always stay at home when you are sick (except for medical emergencies).
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Provide for all meetings to take place remotely whenever possible.
  • If you have concerns around your family, get tested and keep your student home until you know the results. 

We know that these safety strategies alone are not sufficient. We need to create a culture of health, safety, and shared responsibility.  Reopening schools and keeping them open require changing the culture to a “health-first” mind-set with everyone playing a role.  We also need to be aware that even with these measures there may be outbreaks, but that we are prepared to handle them if they occur.
All of us at CCSD have one goal in mind, which is the safety and learning of our students. To meet that goal we will need the help and input from parents and leaders in our communities. As always, to disseminate any news and information we will use our parent call system, post the information on our website, and our social media channels.
