School Nurse

School Counselor

Health Office

The goal of the Health Office is to promote health and safety so that students may focus on learning.  The school nurse, Mrs. Schropp, provides care in the event of illness or injury.  In addition, the nurse administers medication, identifies and communicates contagious illnesses, monitors attendance, conducts state mandated vision and hearing screenings, maintains health records and provides health education to students and families. 

Counseling Services

Counseling services are available at Holy Spirit School and are provided at no cost to the student's family.  The school counselor, Mr. Walter, works with all students through classroom guidance lessons once each month.  In addition, individual, group and family counseling services are available as needed.  Please feel free to contact the counselor to discuss any emotional, behavioral, social or family issue that may impact your child.

If anyone in your family is looking for therapy, a good place to start is with you physician for names and recommendations.  

It is also good to check your private insurance list to see who is covered under your insurance plan.  

The Archdiocese has a list of counselors/psychotherapists who have solemnly pledged that they are Catholics who follow the teachings and authority of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.  They have firmly pledged to follow Catholic teachings in their lives, and to encourage their Catholic clients to live these out as well. 

Jason Flatt Youth Suicide Awareness Act

The Kansas Legislature passed SB 323 which is known as the Jason Flatt Youth Suicide Awareness Act.  This provision requires every school to provide suicide awareness and prevention programming to all school staff.  The statistics related to youth suicide are very sobering and very troubling.  Please take a few minutes to read the PDF below for important information related to youth suicide across the United States. You can also learn more from the website Jason Foundation or click on suicide prevention pdf.
