We want parents to be aware there is a question that asks students if they have thoughts about hurting themselves.  On the day the questionnaire is administered, additional counselors will be on-hand at the campus to review all questionnaires and meet with students who indicated they are struggling and would like to visit with a counselor.  All students are encouraged, but will not be required to participate in the questionnaire.  

If you have questions or concerns about the Student Needs Questionnaire, please contact your child’s counselor.
