PIN: Suicide Prevention
Don't miss this important topic
Event date: Tuesday, November 6 • 9:15am–11:15am
Suicide: It’s the word every parent dreads hearing, yet an increasing body of evidence points to hope—hope that with a better understanding of the warning signs and how to respond, we as a community can protect our kids. Colorado has the 9th highest suicide rate in the U.S. with more than 1,000 suicide deaths per year. Isn’t it time we all learned more about suicide and what we as parents, educators and friends can do to help?
Parents, school administrators and community members are welcome and encouraged to attend PIN’s presentations. No need to RSVP; just come! Presentations are FREE and held at our new location (enter through the main entrance on Fremont):

2018 Climate, Safety, and Wellness Survey
Article date: September 28, 2018
As part Cherry Creek School District’s ongoing efforts to provide safe, supportive learning environments for students and create effective partnerships among students, families, and school staff, during the months of November and December we will survey students, parents, and staff about the climate of safety, wellness, and support that exists in our schools. Having information that comes directly from students, parents, and staff is a critical part of making sure that schools are safe and inclusive for all children.
will be invited to complete the survey in an email that will be sent in early October.
Third through fifth grade students and a random sample of middle and high school students
will be asked to complete the survey. If you have a child who is asked to take part in the survey, the email from the district will include additional information about the student survey, including what to do if you don’t want your child to participate. The student survey will also be posted on the district’s website for parents to review.
The information from the surveys is important for safety and prevention planning both at the district and school levels. All schools will be given summary reports of their school’s data in Spring 2019.
If you have any questions about this survey, please call your school principal or Dr. Amy Plog, CCSD Research and Data Coordinator, at
. Thank you for your participation!
