Wellness Phone Calls

There were some concerns last week when classroom teachers were instructed to make weekly wellness calls to the parents of their students.  This message is to help clarify the expectations for the parent wellness phone calls:

  • Non-instructional staff should be utilized to make the phone calls.  This includes Guidance Counselors, Coaches, Paraprofessionals, Admin, Monitors, etc.
  • The calls will be made to each family at least once a week as a wellness check and to see if there is anything families need help with. 
  • The Non-Instructional staff were provided step by step directions on how to make the calls.  They were given a script to use, frequently asked questions, directions to establish a Google voice account and how paraprofessionals could get a laptop.  If any non-instructional staff, has any additional questions or issues, please contact your administrator for support.
