Along with the implementation of several health and safety protocols to address student and employee needs, The Varnett Public School will also address the social emotional needs of students and staff through our counseling department. Those plans include providing leveled in-class instructional opportunities on social/emotional learning following specific SEL competencies:
• Diversity and Inclusion/ Empathy and Critical Thinking/ Communication/ Problem Solving
• Suicide prevention/ Substance abuse prevention/Trauma informed care/ Grief and Loss
• Career Planning
• Developing and adjusting the curriculum to support digital and social milestones for students and staff.
