The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted students’ mental well-being in numerous ways. Prolonged school closure and online learning pose some challenges for students such as loss of in-person connection, zoom fatigue, and lack of access to stable internet connection.

Further, these transitions have presented parents with new challenges as they interact with and support their children. 

Center for Community Counseling will be offering support groups to help elementary students with mindfulness-based coping skills for online learning, as well as mindfulness-based support groups for parents who desire to strengthen their skills in supporting their children during this time. 

If you’re a student or parent who is interested in these services, call 541-344-0620 for more information. Groups are on a sliding-scale fee with scholarships available. Rolling start dates through February. 

Group format will be online, with limited spots for in-person groups. 

Call to reserve your space as spots are limited. 

Creswell asks town to register bikes

Law Enforcement agencies are partnering with Bike Index to help recover stolen bicycles. To register, people will need the bike’s serial number, model, and brand. 

Residents can mark the bicycle as stolen on the website if it disappears. They can also check the registry to see if the bicycle they’re purchasing is stolen.
