Social Emotional Health Coordinator, Kim Sellers, says the district is focused on every aspect of student health including their emotional and mental well-being. “We do know that students if they’re not in a good place emotionally, they can’t learn,” Sellers said.
There’s a mental health therapist in every school in the district with telehealth options available for students who chose to remain in virtual learning. In addition to therapists, Kings’ three elementary schools each have a therapy dog.
“Kings Cares Callers” is an initiative that connects 48 K-9 remote students with high school students for a weekly Zoom call that helps with isolation and keeps them connected with the district. School counselors are also hosting some virtual groups with online students.
