Netflix -- 13 Reasons Why

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Netflix currently has a series entitled “13 Reasons Why.” We wanted to ensure that as parents and guardians you were aware of this series.  As a recent York Dispatch article stated, mental health and education professionals have expressed concern after viewing “13 Reasons Why.” According to the National Association of School Psychologists, "We do not recommend that vulnerable youth, especially those who have any degree of suicidal ideation, watch this series. Its powerful storytelling may lead impressionable viewers to romanticize the choices made by the characters and/or develop revenge fantasies."  The series graphically depicts some horrific events, ultimately ending in a suicide death.  It addresses in detail a number of difficult topics, such as bullying, sexual assault, self-harm, drug/alcohol use, and other social issues.

We encourage you to talk with your child since this is a popular topic of conversation in social media and with students at school.  Please view this link with important information on starting that conversation.

As a district, our primary role is to keep your children safe and to educate them.  If your child needs support or someone to talk to, please contact our school counseling staff.  We are happy to assist you in engaging your student in supportive conversations and provide you with resources and expertise in preventing harmful behaviors.  Please know that you can always reach out to our schools if you have questions or need to discuss concerns about your child at 814-643-4140.

Students in grade 7 will be required to have a Tdap (if 5 years has expired since the last Tdap) and a MCV.

Students in grade 12 will be required to have a 2nd MCV.

Students entering Kindergarten will be required to have MMRV (measles, mumps, rubella, varicella) booster entering Kindergarten or if transferred from out of state and your child does not have the second booster.
