Helpful Family Resources

Parents, 

 

During this time of remote learning I will be available to speak by phone or email. If you call my school office number: 262-965-6550 ext. 4355 my voicemail is set up to go directly to my email which I will be checking throughout our planned school days. Please leave a number and time you would like me to return your call. Communicating through email works as well. My email is: plumamy@kmsd.edu.

 

I am available to speak with parents and guardians about community mental health resources, home resources for supporting emotional and mental well being, community resources for other related supports such as food pantry availability and locations, as well as, general questions about any concerns you may have for yourself, your child, or another family member regarding social supports and mental health well being.

 

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I wish you all well during this difficult time. Let us support one another and get through this together.

 

Sincerely,

Amy Plum
KM Mental Health Navigator
