Celebrating 50 Years of SCASP

Preparing for the StormHurricane Irma

Once again, residents of South Carolina and neighboring states are facing the possibility of another frightening weather event. Earlier this week, our governor declared a state of emergency for South Carolina as we prepare for the possibility of Hurricane Irma heading in our direction. With all of you, we are hoping that the storm will remain well off-shore.

Given both South Carolina's recent history with weather events over the past two years and Texas's continued struggles following Hurricane Harvey, we recognize that this can be an anxiety-provoking event. As a service to members and other contacts, we'd like to provide you all with resources that we hope will help you, your colleagues, and your students in the upcoming days and weeks. Follow this link to our Safety/Mental Health page. Please feel free to share with your friends. We intend to periodically update information via email, our website, and social media (Facebook and Twitter).

We hope that all of you will remain safe during this time. We know that as a community and as school psychologists, we will find ways to support one another in the days ahead.
