Social, Emotional, and Mental Health Support

Serving Students and Families with Social, Emotional, and Mental Health Support

Our students are presently experiencing a learning environment that looks and feels very different than anything they have experienced in previous years, whether they are attending classes in a hybrid environment or attending classes virtually through our FLVS Learning Program.

The Grandview Heights Schools Department of Student Services is committed to supporting students and families during these challenging times. We also recognize and value the importance of social, emotional, and mental support.  We strive to go beyond academics to help meet the social, emotional, and mental needs of our students, which may be the most challenging and important aspect to address.

We appreciate your continued support as we work together to support every child's learning during these unprecedented times. We also recognize that every child’s social and emotional needs are also vitally important to help them grow into healthy, happy citizens who look forward to the future. Providing access to these supports is a critical district priority.
