Student Support/Special Education

  • Dear Families and Caregivers, 

    Many of our students have special needs that will require learning platforms and services provided in different ways.  We also provide education for many English Learners (ELs) from different countries who speak languages other than English. We hope that you will find the resources on this page helpful in accessing many of the supports and services Plymouth Public School has put into place during this closure. Please do not hesitate to reach out should you have any questions or concerns.

    Social Emotional Health and Wellness:

    Please know that the social-emotional health and well being of our students is of primary concern. The outbreak of the coronavirus may be stressful for students in different ways. Fear and anxiety about the virus can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in children. We are offering students, parents and families resources to help cope with stress in a healthy way. Resources releated to social-emotional learning, academic planning and college/career guidance are offered at each level (grades 9-12, grades 6-8 and grades K-5) and are outlined below. General mental health resources can be found here and mental health resources related to the coronavirus can be found below.

    We have provided a staff list of support personnel - including school psychologists, guidance counselors and adjustment counselors. We want students and parents to know that they can reach out to support staff with any questions or concerns. The preferred method of communication for this is email. Students who are engaged in school-based counseling through Gosnold or South Bay should expect services to continue through telephone or web based video. If your student is experiencing a crisis or emergency, please call 911, go to your nearest emergency department or call Plymouth Emergency Mental Health Services (mobile crisis) at 877-996-3154.
