Mental Health Day |Secondary, May 19May 12, 2021
Each year, as part of a statewide effort to support student mental health, schools are required to provide five hours of mental health training for secondary students. Our State-mandated mental health training will take place on Wednesday, May 19 and our class schedule will be modified slightly (see details below) to accommodate this training.
Below families will also find information about the day, including the schedule and topics planned for each class period. Families may also be interested in reviewing guides provided for home access: Middle School Mental Health Home Guide | High School Mental Health Home Guide.
Based on an understanding that some topics covered may be challenging, counselors will be available to students throughout the day and may be accessed by notifying the class teacher or by students sending a message to their counselors via Canvas.
What Do Students Do on Mental Health Day? Off-campus and on-campus students attend their regular class periods and end the day in their advisory groups. The schedule is provided below. Students will be automatically assigned the virtual curriculum for the day.
