Family Resource Center

Walt Aberli


Family Resource Centers (FRCs) are designed to help remove non-cognitive barriers to student learning. Each center assists students and families through programs, referrals to outside agencies, and partnerships with groups inside and outside of the school. Programs and services are determined by needs of the population served, available resources, and other local characteristics. Our center works with families to improve students’ attendance, to decrease problems with behavior or suspensions, to offer academic support, deal with mental/physical health issues and to offer parent support and assistance. All students and families are served regardless of income.

Who may use the FRC?

The Laukhuf FRC serves all children, parents, and families in our community.

When is the FRC open?

The center is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or by appointment
