School Supports

Our schools have mental health resources available to students and their family. All schools have in-house counselors and our district provides mental health teams and crisis intervention.

We encourage you to contact school counselors regarding any diagnosis, disability or challenge that might impact your student's learning. 

Counselors are student advocates and can offer ideas and resources to help your child meet their learning needs. School counselors can also offer referrals to community resources that might benefit your student.

It is critical for counselors to know when a student has been hospitalized with a physical or mental health issue. Many times, transitioning back to school from a hospital stay can be extremely stressful for students. We want to make sure that we provide a plan of support to include catching up on missed work, handling social situations with friends and addressing whatever individual needs a student may have. It is of high importance to us that students feel safe, supported and engaged when they return to school. 

School Based Programs

Sources of Strength

The mission of Sources of Strength is to prevent suicide by increasing “help-seeking” behaviors and promoting connections between peers and caring adults.
