GUSD Reaches Out

The Glendale Unified School District has issued a statement in response to questions by the community of what its members can do to help following the death of a Crescenta Valley High School student. Among the suggestions is a request to the community to submit hand-written notes of affirmation for individual students. These notes will be put on students’ desks after they return from winter break.

Those interested in submitting a note need to follow these parameters:

Notes should be general, not addressed to a specific student. Notes should be hand-written on an 8½ x 11 sheet of paper. Do not fold the notes.

While these notes can be signed, please only use first names and do not include contact information. Notes can be sent to the CV High School main office at Crescenta Valley High School, Attn: Secretary Laurie Hanson, 2900 Community Ave., La Crescenta, CA 91214 before Jan. 2. They can also be hand delivered to CVHS on Jan. 2 between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
