The goal of the Kasson-Mantorville High School KoMet Pantry is to provide for the basic needs of our students. If we can provide for these basic needs, we are better able to prepare our students to become lifelong learners. In addition, when students know that their community cares for them they will be more willing to engage in the learning process. 

The KoMet Pantry provides students who are in need food, personal hygiene products, clothing, and school supplies.

To learn more about the KoMet Pantry please review our brochure.

If your child would like to access the KoMet Pantry or if you would like to donate please reach out to one of the following people:


School Linked Mental Health (SLMH) is a partnership with community providers to offer mental health services at school sites.  Kasson-Mantorville Schools is partnering with Family Service Rochester to provide mental health treatment to our students. Services are available to all qualifying students and are flexible to meet the needs of the students and families.  The goal of SLMH is to reduce the barriers for students and their families in order for them to receive comprehensive mental health services. These barriers may include:  transportation, financial restrictions, waiting lists, and/or scheduling conflicts.
Services that may be provided include:
  • Intake Interview
  • Diagnostic Assessment
  • Individual Psychotherapy
  • Family Psychotherapy
Services will be covered by individual and family health insurance companies.  However, if costs are a barrier, services may be covered by grant funding.  Mental Health services provided in a school setting have a greater potential to impact the learning environment and positively increases educational outcomes.  Students who have stable mental health do better socially, academically and behaviorally.

Referral Forms are available from your school counselor or social worker.

Referral Process and Therapist Information

Before using your mental health insurance benefits, we recommend that you take the following actions:

  • Call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card
  • Ask for a list of mental health providers in your area; you may request male or female providers as well.
  • Ask about specific coverage (number of sessions, co-pay, and how much insurance will pay).

Your family doctor is another resource you can use to find mental health provider. Ask them for a referral or name(s) of providers to consider.
