• School social workers during distance learning

    School social workers aim to utilize student, family and community strengths to build students social, emotional, and behavioral skills and improve academic outcomes.

     School social workers provide outreach, education, and referrals to ensure students and families have the ability to engage with distance learning and can meet their basic needs including child care, food, shelter, financial, utilities, internet, medical and mental health needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. School social workers connect with students and families to assess student needs and provide social/emotional/behavioral support.

     During distance learning in Anoka-Hennepin, school social workers are committed to supporting students and families in the following ways:

    • Maximizing access to school-based and community-based resources.
    • Providing evidence-based education, social/emotional/behavioral, and mental health services.

     Please contact your child’s school social worker (via district phone or email) if support is needed for your student or family during distance learning.  School social workers will provide remote services for students and families via Google Mail, Voice, or Hangouts Meet.
