The school social worker provides a link between, home, school, and community and will collaborate with the student success team, school staff, and parents to assist children to achieve maximum results from school. The school social worker may provide support by meeting with a child 1:1 for skill building, holding group sessions, providing in-home support to children/families, and/or working with school staff to develop a plan to address concerns.
Students utilize the health office daily when ill or injured and for daily treatments or medications. We screen all 1st and 4th graders each fall.
Families in Housing Transition
Winona Area Public Schools participates in the F.I.T. Program. During these difficult economic times many families are struggling to keep jobs and homes, and to cover basic expenses. Also, some families are going through relationship changes that are putting stressors on the lives in that household.
Families in Transition is available to assist parents and guardians who may be in need of assistance. In the Winona Area Public Schools we can help get youngsters enrolled in a pre-school program, Community Education offerings, school-aged childcare, or a K-12 academic or athletic program. The F.I.T. program is free and is available year round to also help with information and questions about registration, immunizations, and school breakfast and lunch programs.
