Supporting Students’ Mental Health

Hello DVS Families,

In an effort to be more proactive in supporting students’ mental health, an anxiety screener will be given to all students at Da Vinci Science High School. Results from the screener will be used by the counselors to create interventions to support students’ mental health (ex. anxiety groups, one-on-one check-ins). If you would like to opt-out, please make sure to sign the form that was sent home with your student today ad return it to your student’s respective counselor by Monday, October 7, 2019.

Thank you in advance,

DVS Counseling Team
