Each building in our district utilizes behavior screening that covers areas of mental health, offers interventions at varying intensities, and has school staff members such as school counselors, school psychologists, school nurses, school social worker, and a district Mental Health Navigator to help parents navigate the mental health systems. Our schools also utilize therapy dogs!
Our district also has a strong focus on self-care. A few examples of self-care resources that schools have utilized include mindfulness, wellness presentations, teaching lessons about health or resiliency in small groups, and on-site chiropractic care for students and staff. Students also have access to fitness equipment, alternative seating, and fidgets.
