Support Resources for Families and Staff

We recognize that the mental health of our students and their families is of concern for many as we come out of the pandemic. The past school year has been challenging as we faced unprecedented change in our daily lives, routines, and social interactions. Students and families may find themselves in crisis situations that require immediate action. It is important to us that you are aware of local resources that can provide support throughout the entire year, including during the summer. 

Below please find a list of local and national support services that are available to you.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you or someone you know is in need of support.  Please know that we as a school district family are here for you, as well as these dedicated local and national resources.

CommUnity Crisis Services & Mobile Crisis Outreach: Mobile Crisis operates in our community as a mental health crisis response. CommUnity Crisis Services & Food Bank has counselors equipped to help individuals struggling with a wide variety of issues.
