To the La Crescenta Community,

While the holidays bring a lot of cheer and happiness for many people, it can also be a stressful time. We understand that many students in our schools and some families in the La Crescenta community may be dealing with a variety of difficult emotions during the holiday season. We would like to provide to our school community a list of services available to assist our students or anyone who is experiencing a mental health emergency or needs support or guidance.

We would like to wish everyone a safe and peaceful winter break. We look forward to seeing all of our students back at school on Monday, January 7, 2013!

Happy New Year!
