Rockwall ISD News
Summer break is a few days away and we hope you take a break Tuesday night, June 4th, at 6:30 PM to join Rockwall ISD staff and two special community speakers that will provide parents with prevention tools and support for their family as we end the school year.
Join RISD as we help parents respond to the current issues that our students are facing. We want to help parents ask the right questions, have the kind of conversations, and pay attention to the details that we all need to be reminded of in order to change the way our students experience and cope with life.
The evening will begin with resources and facts about how stress and depression affect teenagers and their families. We will discuss options for families, warning signs to look for and prevention techniques that are crucial for us all. An opportunity to ask questions or speak individually to a counselor will be provided. If you are not able to attend but would like information following the event, please email Kim West at firstname.lastname@example.org
