Social & Emotional Well-Being
Social and emotional well-being supports the development of the whole self, including a healthy balance of mental, social/emotional and physical well-being. Focus involves strengthening effective mindsets and behaviors and effective coping skills during times of challenge and conflict. The grade level counselor will be your first point of contact. (Link to Resources in Your Community)
The first line of student support will be your respective kumu. Kumu can be reached via KS email, through dedicated online Office Hours, as well as through the kumu’s designated instructional platform. If additional supports are needed, please email your child’s assigned grade level counselor who will be able to assess the situation and refer your child to the appropriate supports. Please note that teachers and counselors will have the ability to setup videoconference sessions, as needed.
