Rangeview High School is presenting to our 9th grade class depression awareness and suicide prevention training as part of the Signs of Suicide (S.O.S.) Prevention Program. The training will occur the week of October 30 - November 3, 2017. The program has proven to be successful by increasing the number of students who seek help. These students may be concerned about themselves or a friend. Below are copies of the letters that are being sent home to parents. This is the only school-based suicide prevention program listed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. For more information, please click here (English) (Spanish) versions of the attachments.
The adolescent years are marked by a roller-coaster ride of emotions for youth, their parents, and educators. It is easy to misread depression as normal adolescent turmoil. However, depression appears to be occurring at a much earlier age. Depression, which is treatable, is a leading risk factor for suicide. In addition, self-injury has become a growing problem among youth.
To proactively address these issues, Rangeview High School is offering depression awareness and suicide prevention training as part of the Signs of Suicide (S.O.S.) Prevention Program. The program has proven to be successful by increasing the number of students who seek help. These students may be concerned about themselves or a friend. This is the only school-based suicide prevention program listed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Our goals in participating in the program are straightforward:
The training will occur the week of October 30-November 3, 2017. If you have any questions and/or would like to meet with your student’s counselor regarding the presentation, please contact Brook Knower, Counseling Secretary, at 303-326-1857 by Thursday, October 12, 2017.
If you do NOT want your child to participate in the S.O.S. program, please sign and return this letter to Mrs. Knower, Counseling Secretary, in the Rangeview High School Counseling Department by Thursday, October 26, 2017.

We need strong writers to apply to become writing consultants! If you are interested….please fill out the attached application, and send them to Eve Rutherford (233A) or Kelly Bakersky (233B) to turn the applications in by Friday, October 6th at 3:30PM.

One of the most important safety practices for students are the Safety Drills that we conduct. At Rangeview and Aurora Public Schools we take these drills seriously. Over the course of the school year we will be conducting Fire Drills, Lockdown Drills, and Tornado Drills. These are all designed to prepare staff and students for adverse situations. Your help and encouragement are appreciated.
