Message from the Glendale Unified School District:
As you may know, the Crescenta Valley High School community tragically lost a student life to suicide this week. Many of you have reached out asking what you can do to help. In the wake of such a horrible, shared tragedy, standing together and supporting each other is the most helpful thing we can do.
It is important that each and every one of our students feels a sense of belonging in our school community and knows that they are valued, cared for, and loved. One of the ways we hope to achieve this mission is be writing hand-written notes of affirmation for our individual students. We encourage our staff, families, and community members to submit notes as well. These notes will be put on students’ desks after they return from winter break.
If you are interested in submitting a note, please follow these parameters:
Notes should be general, not addressed to a specific student
Notes should be hand-written on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper
Do not fold the notes
While these notes can be signed, please use your first name only and do not include contact information. While this may be well-intentioned, as a school it is not our place to connect students with anyone other than professionals or those cleared by their parents or guardians.
Please send your notes to the CV main office at the address below before Jan. 2. You can also hand deliver notes to CV on Jan. 2 between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
