Student and Family Resource Lines serve as your connection to the student supports at your school.
Just like you may call or stop by the counselor or social worker’s office, we encourage you to use the Resource Line during this time of distance learning. If you are worried about how your child is doing emotionally or need help accessing community services, we are here to support you.
Rochester Public Schools is collaborating with a variety of non-profit organizations, the city of rochester, and many of our partners to provide community resources for our families.
