  • Take a break- students will have the opportunity to take a quiet break when they are feeling frustrated, angry, sad,

or just in need of quiet time. There will be hands on items and visuals available to help their need. A timer will be set, the reason for their break will be discussed, recorded and sent home. Taking a break does NOT mean a child is in trouble.
