SOS Signs of Suicide

During this challenging year, school staff are working to teacher students about mental health and how to seek help if they are worried about themselves or a friend.  We are using a program called SOS Signs of Suicide.  The program teaches students about this difficult topic and encourages them to seek help.  This program will be provided to all 8th grade students through their Health class and will be conducted during the weeks of November 8th and 15thYour child’s Health/PE teacher will inform your child of the exact day prior to the lesson.  If you do not wish for your child to participate in the SOS lesson, please sign and submit the opt-out letter and return it to your child’s Health/PE teacher or email Mrs. Mizelle or Mrs. Sams (tbmizelle@henrico.k12.va.us; edsams@henrico.k12.va.us)) by Friday, November 5th.  Please review the letters and information in the links below:
