Hot Topics



It has come to our attention that many of our students are watching a new Netflix series called “13 Reasons Why." The show portrays serious themes, including drug use, sexual assault, and suicide. Even if your child is not watching the show, they may be hearing about it from their peers.

We would like to ask you to partner with us to help students in need. You can make a world of difference by doing the following:

  1. Know the warning signs for students struggling emotionally/having suicidal ideation:

   -Suddenly deteriorating school performance
    -Changes in school attendance
​    -Talking about suicide and making suicide threats
​    -Loss of interest in things they use to enjoy doing
   -An unusual interest in death or dying
   -Taking unnecessary risks
   -Feelings of hopelessness
   -Change in friendships or withdrawing from friends and social activities
​   -Mood swings or personality changes
   -Changes in eating and sleeping habits
   -Giving away prized possessions


      2. Talk to your child:

    -Let your child know you care
    -Do not be afraid to ask your child if they have or are thinking about suicide

     3. Seek help:

    -If it is an emergency, call 911
    -Contact your child’s pediatrician or doctor
    -Contact a local mental health provider. If you need a referral you may contact    the High School Counseling office at:  515-465-8370.
    -Notify your child’s administrator and school counselor

We care deeply about the well-being of all our students and we know that you care about the well-being of your child, as well. Please do not hesitate to reach out for help. Thank for your support
