    School Social Worker

    Serving all students and families

    563-723-5500 ext.144




    DCSD employs a full-time social worker at NHS to serve as an additional resource for all students and families.  The NHS social worker oversees our school-based mental health therapy program, runs the school food pantry, assists with clothing needs, coordinates counseling groups run by outside agencies and provides daily social-emotional support to students. The social worker works with students and families to identify their needs and then connects them with services that will benefit them.

    The social worker is also the designated homeless liaison and works with students and families that are experiencing homelessness. Any of the above mentioned services can be accessed by contacting the school social worker, whose contact information is located above. The social worker’s office is located within the Student Services office.

    North has an on-site food pantry that can be accessed by any student or family at NHS that qualifies for free and/or reduced lunch or food stamp benefits.  All of the food provided to the pantry comes from the River Bend Food bank.  There is also a small supply of personal hygiene products and cleaning supplies available.  Families and/or students simply need to complete an Eligibility Form once a year for statistical record keeping along with signing in each time they access the pantry. Pantry distribution occurs on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 9:30-11am and can be accessed by driving to the back of the school around the west side to door labeled “15N”.  Please remain in your vehicle and someone will bring food to your vehicle.  Student(s) and/or families can access the pantry at other times by making arrangements with the school social worker.  Listed below is the distribution schedule and there is a REMIND APP that students and families can sign up for that texts reminders on delivery dates.  To receive this text reminder service, simply text @northfood to 81010. You’ll get a text asking for your full name which you will type and send.

    North High School provides our students and families with on-site therapy services during the school day.  These therapy services are provided by Family Resources and Vera French Community Mental Health Center, both of whom can bill private insurance, Medicaid or access a grant for payment of services.  A private office is located within the Student Services office and appointment times are made in an effort to minimize absences from core academic classes.  There is a set of referral paperwork that needs to be completed by a parent or guardian of any student under the age of 18 for this service to occur.


    NHS maintains a small, on-site clothing closet that can be accessed by students in need of clothing.  There are winter coats, hats and gloves available every winter, along with casual and some dress clothes for both males and females.  If a student is in need of a particular size or article of clothing that we do not have, referrals will be made to community agencies in an attempt to locate the necessary clothing.
