A new web page, Back to School Resources for Parents, provides various resources to address parent and student physical and mental health.
The Department of Public Instruction partnered with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) to provide some of the available mental health, nutrition, and behavioral resources as students head back to school.
From immunizations to healthy social behavior, DHS coordinated with state agencies and organizations to provide information for parents as the school year gets underway. The DPI resources focus on specific topics such as social and emotional health, trauma-sensitive practices, bullying prevention, and free and reduced meal applications.
For this information and much more, visit the DHS Back to School Resources for Parents web page.
