Talking about suicide does not plant the idea in someone's head. Honest and direct

dialogue can open communication and relieve stress for those suffering in silence.

  • Know the warning signs and risk factors of suicide.
  • Ask, "Do you ever feel so bad you have thoughts of suicide or self-harm?"
  • Emphasize the importance of speaking up and seeking help.
  • Have your kids think of three trusted adults they can go to for support. This is the number one protective factor for youth.

wellness, visit

Do you know a Park Hill Star?

The Park Hill Star recognition program was started in 2015 to celebrate support staff and teachers whose work is especially noteworthy.

The following is an overview of the Park Hill Star Program:

Our employees are the reason we are so successful here in the Park Hill School District, and we would like to recognize them for all they do for our students. That is why we present the Park Hill Star award once a month to a pre-K or elementary teacher, a secondary teacher and a support employee.
