Mental Awareness Month Spotlight
The U.S. Surgeon General released a new advisory report this month that highlights the significant health implications of social isolation and loneliness, which includes the risk of depression, anxiety and substance abuse. The advisory shares the healing effects of social connection and community and encourages strong and supportive relationships to promote our overall well-being. Here are a few highlights, or click the link below for the full report:

HIGH SCHOOL SPORTING EVENTS
Parents and guardians of middle school students who wish to attend high school athletic contests:
Middle school students attending high school games must attend with an adult. Middle school students need to sit in the stands during games. High schools do not have the staffing to supervise middle school students. Just like all Bend/LaPine high schools, Redmond high schools believe that middle school students can successfully achieve this goal. However, in the event that middle school students cannot stay in the stands, they will be required to sit with the adult who brought them to the game or be required to leave. Please help your student enjoy the game by monitoring them while on high school property.
