A Message from your Social Workers
Hello everyone!  Remember to do your part and physically distance yourself from others, but please don’t isolate yourself.  Social distancing does not mean social isolation. Continue to communicate with friends and family, pick up that phone or video chat.  It is normal to feel a little more anxious than usual when routines change and are disrupted, but know that there are people available to talk with if you are feeling unusually anxious or need some support.  Our social workers, Mr.Otts  315-435-4427 and Mrs. Cusano 315-435-4669 are available to talk and would love to hear from you.
