Weekly Surface Tip or Trick

Make sure you are saving all of your documents to your OneDrive for Business account. By saving everything to this location, you ensure that you will have access anywhere. If you save anything under your student identification number, then you will have access while in our building, but then lose access when you are at home or elsewhere as you are not on the school network.


Mental Health Tip for September

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, a time devoted to mobilizing global action for suicide prevention through awareness-building and research efforts.  The Centers for Disease Control lists suicide as the second leading cause of death among youth aged 11-18. While school is an ideal place to teach suicide prevention to youth, everyone can benefit from learning the warning signs of suicide. Information on signs and symptoms to look for, common myths about suicide, and tips to have a constructive conversation with a friend or loved one is available here.
