Clinical Corner Spotlight – Summer Safety:

Most of our children are anxiously awaiting summer break.  Although the thought of a long vacation is exciting, the lack of structure, predictability, and a daily routine can sometimes heighten stress levels.  As parents, your stress level is probably escalating too, because of the added pressure of ensuring that your child maintains physical and emotional stability and safety during their increased hours of “freedom.”  Please see attached for some helpful strategies to help you and your child achieve and maintain a healthy, happy summer.

 

Student Withdrawal from School:

Students who will not be attending Northern Burlington in the fall, regardless of the reason, need to be officially transferred.  Parents should contact the counseling office with any questions at 609-298-3900 x2051.

We provide the 6-hours of Behind the Wheel Instruction needed for your 16-yr old to obtain their driving permit as well as transportation to their road test and refresher hours.
