• Hi, my name is Hannah Palotas, and I am the Mental Health Specialist at JoAnna Connell Elementary School!

    As the Mental Health Specialist, I work as part of the Student Assistance Program. The Student Assistance Program is designed to help identify barriers to learning so students can become more successful in school. Our Student Assistance Team at JoAnna Connell Elementary is educated in identifying student strengths and needs, and skilled in working with the child and family to identify and access the necessary support that will help each referred child to become more successful in school.

    For more information regarding the Student Assistance Program and available mental health services, please email me at hpalotas@eriesd.org or call (814) 874-6795.
