A Great Place for Kids, Community and Staff


Boozhoo Families and Staff,

We want to help our families with any resources we possibly can. We want to keep our mental health in mind as well. So, that being said it is natural for our children to worry about their families, themselves and whom they love and care for. Talking to our children about what is happening in a open and honest manner will decrease anxiety and fear. Please make sure it is coming from a factual resource such as the CDC. Educate children about germs and how they can spread. Families who talk with their children about this are safer children and the link below will help with more information. Miigwech
