Crisis Counseling Response Teams

Crisis Counseling Response Teams have been created to respond to the death of a student or teacher during the school year. The teams are both school level and district level and are prepared for a quick and appropriate response to tragedy with the intention of assisting students and staff with their mental health needs. 

On-going provision of emotional support by Student Services Personnel

The Student Services Department will assist students with on-going needs post-incident to ensure a smooth transition to routine and to offer emotional support. Both school social workers and school counselors are trained to respond to these needs.
