Social Worker’s Minute

The 2018-2019 school year will be the first for KCKPS to have a school Social Worker in almost every building. Arrowhead’s Social Worker is Mrs. McFarlin, who worked as an intern with the McKinney-Vento Program in the KCK Public School District during the 2015-2016 school year. Mrs. McFarlin’s role here at Arrowhead is to be a support to students, parents, teachers and staff. This role can function in many different ways, such as, facilitating accommodation plans for the classroom, helping a student manage themselves in the classroom, providing psycho-education, administering referrals to services in the community, and helping students cope with every day stressors. As the Social Worker, Mrs. McFarlin hopes all parents will feel welcome to reach out with any questions or concerns about their child during their time at Arrowhead. Please feel free to reach Mrs. McFarlin by phone or email at 913-627-6626 or conner.mcfarlin@kckps.org.
