Laurel Valley Elementary School » E-SAP


E-SAP is the Elementary Student Assistance Program.  If one of our learners is having behavioral difficulties in school, they may be referred to the SAP team.  The team has a mental health liaison on board.  If you as the parent permit it in writing, she will interview your child.  She will then call you with her recommendations.  This service has helped many learners in our school along with the school based mental health from Excela Health.
Through this program, school staff, learners, and parents/guardians are able to identify and refer learners to appropriate programs that deal with issues related to alcohol, drugs, or social/emotional health.  It is important to note that SAP is not a treatment program but an intervention program.  Information is kept confidential unless the health or well-being of the child is at risk. Members of the SAP team include: Mrs. Carns (SAP Coordinator), Mr. Theys, Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. Lear and Mrs. Sapalio. Parents or teachers can contact Mrs. Carns at 724-235-2723 to make a referral or to get additional information.
