The wellness of our students is vital to their ability to learn. Our district's Coordinated School Health and Mental Health departments are dedicated to supporting our students physical, social, and emotional needs.
With the collaboration between administrators, teachers, parents, counselors, school social workers and school psychologists, we provide social/emotional support and intervention. We focus on prevention as well as intensive intervention for those who need additional support.
Looking for additional support? Check out The Social Work Corner to have access to our Mindfulness Room and learn about more resources for your family!

What is a School Social Worker?
A school social worker (SSW) is a trained mental health professional who works to connect students, families, schools and communities to the support they need. SSW may offer individual or group counseling, psycho-education for students, parents, and educators, and work to connect families with local resources.
Licensed School Social Workers function as an important link to identify barriers in the school, home, and community that affect students' abilities to develop their full social, emotional, and academic potential.
