The Michigan Department of Education has recommended Universal Wellness Screeners again this year to help identify students in need of additional support services. Staff may administer brief wellness surveys in coordination with our school mental health team. Survey responses will be used to connect students with appropriate resources, including school mental health professionals (such as a school social worker or counselor). We are not requesting written parent/guardian permission for school-wide student mental health screening. Instead, upon request, we will provide you with all survey items (9 or 10 basic questions). Families are able to request that their child(ren) do not participate. If you do not want your child to participate in school wellness screenings, you may opt your child out by contacting the main office.
