Thank You to Our Community Partners

Throughout this year, students across the District are working with our community partners to develop personal and social competencies to manage stress, make safe and healthy choices, and maintain positive relationships with others. Prior to lessons on these topics, families received letters home with additional information. As a correction, Compass Health Network does not collect personal, protected information in its K-5 lessons. Thank you to our partners for their continued work on these important topics!
