Greetings! My name is Emily Wright and I am the school social worker at Rankin. My job is to make sure that students are here and ready to learn each and every day!!! I assist students and their families with any barrier to learning that may arise. I assist with referrals to resources for housing, medical and dental care, food, furniture, transportation and others. Attendance is key to student success so I promote good school attendance and address attendance concerns. I coordinate a supplemental food program for families who are food insecure. We have a school food pantry and I distribute food bags as needed on Fridays. I make home visits when necessary. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you or your student have a concern, worry or need.
I may be reached at 336-375-2545 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you.
