Resources for Student Safety and Welfare

If you have questions or concerns about the safety and welfare of your Cloverly student(s), Dr. Brunson (Cloverly principal) or Mrs. Sobieralski (school counselor) should be your first contact.

If you have questions about the “body safety classes” that are presented to all Cloverly students, please contact Mrs. Sobieralski and she can share and discuss the specific materials for your child’s grade.
