School Social Worker


The Youth & Family Services Coordinator provides various services to students and their families in the Connetquot community. We provide crisis intervention, short term individual and group counseling, parent consultation, information and referral to community based service agencies as well as various prevention programs and our Dignity character education program. The YFS Coordinator provides state mandated health lessons for all students in grades K-5 through classroom presentations.

The YFS coordinators work as a team with staff, students, parents and the community to create a caring atmosphere whereby children's needs are met through prevention, early identification and intervention.
