Here are some other ideas for coping strategies as your students (and you) continue with social distancing, quarantine, and more during this time.
Welcome to RMMS Counseling
SIGNS OF SUICIDE LESSON
Youth suicide, a leading cause of death among young people in Utah, is a major public health concern. In 2013, the Utah legislature passed a Youth Suicide Prevention Bill, which requires school districts and charter schools to implement a youth suicide prevention program for students in grades 7-12.
Rocky Mountain Middle School is implementing the Signs of Suicide Prevention Program (S.O.S.) in 8th grade on Wednesday, October 21st (Friday October 23rd for the 8thgrade hybrid class), and 6th grade on Thursday, October 22nd in their math class. The 7th graders will receive a similar program in their health classes.
The program has proven to be successful at increasing help for students concerned about themselves or a friend by identifying and addressing suicide risk and depression.
If you do NOT wish for your child to participate in the S.O.S. program, please complete the opt out form located here. Print and return it to the counseling office by Tuesday, October 20th.
TECHNOLOGY HELP FOR PARENTS: RMMS teachers will be using CANVAS heavily this year for assignments and grading. In order for parents to monitor their student's progress, parents will need to have a parent observer CANVAS account. Please follow the link below for instructions on how to set up a parent observer CANVAS account and video guides on how to use it. You can also find other helpful resources on this link.
