• Suicide Awareness, Prevention & Response Policy & Resources

    The Pine-Richland School Board is committed to protecting the health, safety and welfare of its students and school community. This policy supports federal, state and local efforts to provide education on youth suicide awareness and prevention; to establish methods of prevention, intervention, and response to suicide or suicide attempt; and to promote access to suicide awareness and prevention resources.  

    In compliance with state law and regulations, and in support of the district’s suicide prevention measures, information received in confidence from a student may be revealed to the student’s parents/guardians, the building principal or other appropriate authority when the health, welfare or safety of the student or any other person is deemed to be at risk.

    The district shall utilize a multifaceted approach to suicide prevention which integrates school and community-based supports. Please take time to review the district's policy and available resources by clicking below on the blocks.
