South Plainfield Schools Offering Support Through Social Emotional Programming, Counseling Sessions

SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Through the South Plainfield School District’s Guidance Department, efforts are being made to ensure the social and emotional needs of students are being met during the current healthcare crisis.

In each building, guidance counselors are working with students one-on-one and in groups well as holding various safe and socially distant programs to provide them with much-needed interaction with their peers. 

“Our district turned to virtual learning for four months last spring and started this school year virtually as well. Many of our students have been disconnected from their peer and many do not have opportunities for social interaction” said Sam Fierra, director of guidance for the South Plainfield School District. “Our goal is to provide every student not only the opportunity to meet with their counselor but to also provide a fun activity where students can have some type of social interaction with one another.”
