Betz Elementary Counselor's Corner


Hello Students and Families,

School life has become very different for all of us this year. Virtual classrooms, Zoom visits, Google Docs... A lot is being asked of you to help facilitate your or your students' learning.  Your homes are now the classroom, your dining tables the school desk.  I know it has not been easy, stay positive, stay strong and remember that you are not alone. Please don't hesitate to call if you have any concerns or questions.


I look forward to seeing you all again soon, but in the meantime please stay safe and healthy. hugs


Mrs. Bridie Riddick
