Dear Dragon Families -
Annually, we are required to share information on the Trauma-Informed School Initiative website from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The mental health of our students is a priority, and we want to make sure you have resources at your fingertips. There is good information on this website including a resource guide for parents and caregivers. We encourage all parents and guardians to review the information to learn more about the stresses and trauma students in schools face. The resources include a document to help your own child who may be experiencing these challenges. If you know your child has experienced or is experiencing trauma in their life, please reach out to our school counselor, Mrs. Karla Wood, and/or your child's teacher, especially if we can help connect you to the mental health resources available locally, and also through our school, to meet the needs of your student.
The link to the website is below:
Thank you, and have a wonderful rest of the week!
