Parents – School counselors will be presenting our annual “Signs of Suicide” lesson to all students during their health classes on October 21st, 22nd, 29th and 30th. We are teaching this lesson to offer depression awareness and suicide prevention training to all of our students. While we feel this is vital to social-emotional learning, parents may choose to opt children out of this lesson. Informational letters were sent home through health classes on October 3rd and 4th. We have also posted this letter on the school counseling website. If you choose to opt-out, please return the signed letter to the school counseling office by October 16th.
