Dear Parents & Students,
There are lots of events coming up that we hope you can attend. Our first early release day is September 15. Important information, including suicide prevention resources, is below.
Suicide Prevention Day – Sept. 10
Recognizing when people in our lives are struggling with emotional pain and helping them feel comfortable to talk about it can help prevent mental health crisis, including suicide. Learning the warning signs, knowing how to start a conversation, and knowing where to get professional help can make a powerful life changing difference. Complete the Request for Support Form if you are a student or if you know a student who needs help. Additional Suicide Prevention Resources from our partner, Care Solace, are HERE and a suicide prevention video is HERE.
