Arlington ISD’s social and emotional learning (SEL) department is working behind the scenes. Moreover, they plan to ensure social and emotional supports are readily available for meeting student needs during these uncertain times. Similarly, the SEL department is setting up guidance and counseling support systems. Additionally, they offer student outreach supports and positive learning environment supports that specifically address the current remote learning environment.
Students, if you are struggling with grades or feel overwhelmed by school or anything else in your life, counselors can help. Call the School Counseling Hotline at (682) 867-9416.
Parents, if you need food for your family, utility assistance or help with the loss of housing, please call the Community Support Services Hotline at (682) 867-9417.
