All absences, both excused and unexcused, from that day forward until the end of the school year will be counted for the Senior Attendance Incentive Plan. Please click on the link for the details!

Suicide Prevention, Intervention, and Postvention

Suicide is a serious public health problem that takes an enormous toll on families, students, employees and communities. Suicide prevention involves the collective efforts of families/caregivers, the school community, mental health practitioners, local community organizations, and related professionals to reduce the incidence of suicide through education, awareness, and services. School personnel are instrumental in helping students and their families by identifying students at-risk and linking them to school and community mental health resources.
