Parent Surveys to Be Completed
Parents/Guardians: On September 5, you will receive an email with a link included regarding a survey about your child. We ask that each family complete one survey for each child. This survey asks for you to give us some information about your child that you'd like to share with teachers and school personnel. Tell us about your child, including goals you have for your child this school year and long-term. This information will be shared with your child's teachers, counselors, and administrators so we can better work together to make it a positive school year.
If you do not receive this email, or need to receive the survey in a different format, please contact Jenny McMillen at 859-261-8210 or Jennifer.McMillen@ludlow.kyschools.us.

Suicide Prevention Month
September is Suicide Prevention Month. Schools in Kentucky are required to discuss suicide prevention and provide the hotline information to students in Grades 6-12; our counselors will be providing this information to our students.
Recognizing when people in our lives are struggling with emotional pain and helping them feel comfortable to talk about it can help prevent mental health crises, including suicide. Learning the warning signs, knowing how to start a conversation, and knowing where to get professional help can make a powerful, life-changing difference.
