College & Career Planning
With closures due to COVID-19, families may have questions about the impact on college admissions and career planning. Please visit the SDUHSD College & Career Planning page for resources as well as following your high school counselors communications and guidance directly.
Remember, from K-12 to colleges, everyone in education is adjusting to this unexpected situation. Many college and career programs have shared information about adjustments to admission policies and transcript review due to circumstances surrounding the coronavirus and school closures. Information changes based on current conditions and the institutions themselves are the best sources for updated information. We wanted to share some relevant examples:

Feelings of stress, anxiety, or other depression-like symptoms are common reactions during and after the uncertainty of any natural or human-caused incident. Limiting exposure to media and creating a routine with opportunities for varied activities and breaks from "screen time" has been shown to assist people with coping. Here is an example of a suggested daily home schedule during school closure.
Talk with your family about how they are feeling and follow guidance to reduce the effects of stress on your physical and emotional health.
