Support is here for you

You already know that the Norwin School District sends frequent Updates to Families via email. At the bottom of these emails is a section entitled “Resources”. This section lists links to helpful information about school plans, articles, and services that are available to all Norwin families. You should also know that there are other ways that the Norwin Community is supporting families. A collection of mental health, financial, wellness, utility, residential, and spiritual resources are listed on this website: I know that content is continuously added, so please reference it any time – even daily – when you need support and assistance. In addition to the outreach by individual teachers and teaching teams, the Norwin School District is continuing to operate school-level Student Assistance Programs (SAP). SAP’s mission is to identify and remove barriers that children and their families are facing so that students can learn. A small group of specially trained staff members collaborate bi-weekly with local mental health providers to address these needs. If you would like to know more about what SAP can do for your child or if you wish to talk confidentially to a mental health liaison, please contact your child’s teacher, Mrs. Edmonds our school counselor, or me. We are ready to immediately connect our families to local networks that can provide support, guidance, and resources. Thank you for all that you are doing to keep your children happy, relaxed, and engaged in online education. We appreciate you and your efforts! #TogetherWeCan.
Dr. Newell.
