Refueling Station During Finals

Stress Finals
As finals, the holidays, and the end of the calendar year approaches, San Rafael City Schools' Wellness Team wants to encourage our community to mindfully reflect on how we manage stress. Across all three high school campuses, we will be posting our "Stress Curve" image, to remind students about healthy vs. unhealthy levels of stress, and methods of coping or seeking support. Additionally, the Wellness Team and other campus staff will distribute healthy snacks and other relaxation-related items like essential oils, during the 15 minute break between final exams on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Our goal is to highlight to students that when stress is high, there are supportive adults available on campus, and that they can choose healthy stress-management strategies.  Here is an excerpt from a larger article on how to manage stress.
