Two Mental Health and Wellness Events for our Community

We invite our DASD Community to two upcoming events concerning Mental Health and Wellness.  We want to give everyone in the community the opportunity to share their ideas, concerns and solutions. In Dr. Lonardi's 1/8/19 letter to parents, she wrote that we want to create a school district where students feel there is always someone to talk to, and somewhere to turn, even when life seems difficult. Your involvement is this area is critical . . .it does takes a village.
