Parents, 

We are down to the last 3 days of the school year.  Our focus is on finishing the right way, leaving it better than it was found.  Please help us by discussing that with your students.

I know this next message is long but please read through it.  This information is to give perspective of what our adolescents are facing today.  Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why will debut on Netflix today, May 18, 2018. The fictional series, based on Jay Asher’s book of the same title, explores the suicide of a teen, with the Season 1 finale showing the suicide in graphic detail over a 3-minute scene. As with other Netflix series, all episodes are released at once with viewers frequently watching a season from beginning to end in the same day.  After the Season 1 release of 13 Reasons Why last year, the web-search phrase “how to commit suicide” rose 26% above what would normally have been expected for that time according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA Internal Medicine). The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) sent a notice to their members across the country on how to talk about the show and posted Considerations for Educators online. More recently, NASP shared Information Regarding the Upcoming Release of 13 Reasons Why, Season 2.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact us immediately.
