Spring 2020 Drive-In - CANCELLED - School Psychologists of Georgia,
I wanted to take a minute to reach out to all of you at this time. The outbreak of COVID-19 has caused many changes in schedules and disruptions in all of our lives. Please stay safe and healthy. Follow the recommendations of the federal, state, and local governments to practice social distancing and good hygiene. I have attached some resources from the NASP website regarding talking to children about COVID-19 and support for school-based crisis teams.
This is not a time for panic, but a time to show unity. Let's all do our part to slow the spread of this virus in order to protect the most vulnerable members of our population and to avoid overwhelming our medical facilities and personnel.
Along these lines, the CDC has made the recommendation to cancel gatherings of 50 or more people for the next 8 weeks. Following this recommendation, we have made the decision to cancel Spring Conference on April 24th. For those of you who have already registered, we will work out a method of refund to you or your school district. If you have made a hotel registration, please contact the hotel directly to cancel.
Take care of yourselves, be kind to each other, check on your family, friends, and neighbors, and WASH YOUR HANDS.
I look forward to seeing you all together soon.
Janine Sheedy, Ed.S.
Georgia Association of School Psychologists, President 2019-2020
