Student Safety Letter
Carta de seguridad
At this time of year, our staff at Sligo Middle School wants to re-emphasize
our enduring commitment to ensuring that all students are able to learn and
grow in school communities where they are safe and supported. We continue
to address health-related concerns and needs, including mental health and
wellness, suicide awareness, substance use, and bullying prevention. We
strive to support our students by providing factual information that they may
use to confront serious issues and make positive, responsible decisions.
The best way to support and protect the emotional development of our youth is
to encourage open, honest conversations during which students may speak about
and share their feelings. When students receive the message that it is
acceptable and desirable to talk about feelings, mental health, and their
worries, students are more likely to reach out to an adult for help when they
are in distress.
Attached to this email you will find resources for the Montgomery County BtheOne
campaign, as well as other local and national agencies to assist parents and
guardians in having conversations with their students.
As always, should you need any supports from Sligo MS, please don’t hesitate to
call us at 301-287-8890.
