Student Assistance Program



What is the SAP Program in the High School ?


The SAP Team (Teachers, Nurse, Counselors , Friendship House , TRE-HAB , Administrators) is designed to improve the quality of education in our school by providing assistance through referrals to resources for students struggling with drugs/alcohol, depression/suicidal thoughts or behaviors. SAP focuses on identifying student behavior, which adversely affects learning.

Resource for Sexual Assaults and Teens

Open communication can be a challenge with teens, but it’s an important part of keeping them safe. As teens become more independent and spend more time with friends and other activities, it’s important to keep the lines of communication open and let your teen know they can trust you. Learn more about talking to kids and teens about sexual assault.




Remember, you are not alone. If you suspect sexual abuse you can talk to someone who is trained to help. Call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800.656.HOPE (4673) or chat online at online.rainn.org.
