All of us are struggling to some extent or another with the current pandemic, remote learning and the loneliness associated with both. If you or a family member are having a difficult time with this, you may find this short article on "Addressing Teen Mental Health During the Pandemic" helpful. Also, please be sure to check out the Wellness and High School Wellness pages on the Manchester School District's website for ideas and resources to help you or a family member cope with mental and/or physical health issues at any time.

FREE HiSET TRAINING
MY TURN has secured an Adult Basic Education/Adult Education and Literacy contract in Manchester. We have braided those funds together with our DHHS/NHEYP grant funds (that currently fund our dually enrolled high school HiSET students) and are offering a full time HiSET Prep Program at our new space at 340 Granite Street. Our classes run from 10:30am to 1:30pm and from 5:00pm to 8:00pm Monday through Thursday and we offer support by appointment, workshops, testing, etc. on Fridays.
Our HiSET Program will remain housed at 340 Granite Street, so that all of our students will have access to our expanded class offerings. Many of our high school students attended classes here over the summer, several have returned in the past few weeks, and others are being actively re-engaged. We are offering a hybrid or fully virtual option for all students. Please see the attached flyer for more info. Laurilee remains with MY TURN and is the Director and Lead Instructor and we have added Lynn Hayden to our team as our Evening HiSET Instructor and Case Manager.
