Netflix/13 Reasons Why

Some of you may be aware of the new Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, which many teens are watching. This series is based on a book by Jay Asher. The series follows a group of high school students as they piece together a story left behind for them by their classmate, Hannah Baker, who died by suicide. This is a fictional series, rated TVMA, which mens it may not be suited for children under the ade of 17. While the show has seen praise from critics for its content, many mental health experts have been critical of the show for the lack of addressing mental illness or providing examples of how suicide can be avoided.

With so many students having access to Netflix in private through their phones or other devices and in some cases sharing their Netflix passwords with their friends, it is important that you are aware of this series, its popularity and its mature content. In addition to suicide, there are a number of other difficult themes touched upon such as bullying, sexual assault, depression and drug use.

While this program may raise useful discussions between children and adults, the message we want to send to our young people is that suicide is never the answer, there is no shame in asking for help, and that there are healthy ways to cope when having suicidal thoughts. If children are permitted to watch the series, we encourage parents to watch the episodes with your children. According to the Centers for Disease Control, suicide is the third leading cause of death for children between the ages of 10 and 14. Please know that our school social workers, psychologists, and administrators are available to assist should you have any questions concerns about this topic.

Illinois Department of Human Rights

The State of Illinois is committed to ensuring that every administrator, educator, staff member, parent, guardian, appointed or elected official, and most importantly, every student unite in condemning intolerable acts of hate, regardless of message or motivation, and stand together to denounce and prevent any acts of discrimination and bigotry, including hate crimes, in our local schools and institutions of higher learning.

Acts of discrimination, bullying, harassment, violence, vandalism, or any form of intimidation have no place in an academic environment, no matter their source, target, or reason. The state, through the Department of Human Rights, takes acts of discrimination seriously and will partner with the State Board of Education, the Illinois Community College Board, and the State Board of Higher Education to investigate any and all reports of them taking place within our schools. It is incumbent on all of us to ensure that all students are aware of their rights and understand that hateful and unlawful actions will not be tolerated. This message must be emphasized at all levels of the education system.

Snow Days


Deciding whether or not to have a "snow day", "ice day" or "cold day" is always a challenge for a superintendent. Many factors go into making the decision - contact is made with other neighboring district superintendents, our transportation company, staff, and several different weather resources are all considered. I know how difficult it is as a parent to have to make last minute child care provisions. We do our best to make the decision and subsequent calls as soon as possible.
