Grand Opening of 'The Rest Stop'

February 3, 2020

Monday was the grand opening of 'The Rest Stop.' ERUSD's Mental Health Liaison, Mr. Jeff Middleton, described its creation and purpose:

"The Mental Health Staff has teamed up with the ERHS Student Wellness Leadership Team to develop a space for students (and staff) to have a calm, safe space during lunch. The student's voted on Twitter, and the name is 'The Rest Stop.' It will be in room O-1 starting Monday, February 3rd."

"The Rest Stop is intended to be a relaxing, supervised space with support from the mental health team and community organizations such as AltaMed and Insight LA (every Wednesday). AltaMed will offer health information every other Monday and InsightLA will offer weekly mindfulness workshops for STAFF and students every Wednesday."
