Help is Available

At this time of year with the change in seasons, people are often feeling happier with the increased sunshine, warmer days and longer evenings. But we know that for some people they may believe that they have unsolvable problems and situations that make them very unhappy. They may be angry and blame themselves for difficult situations. They may want to hurt themselves or find a way to make the bad feelings stop and go away. If at times you feel this way, or you know and worry about another student, please go to and tell a trusted adult. There are many adults in your school that want to help if students will talk to them. We want everyone in our school to be safe, so please ask for help if needed.
