Throughout the fall of 2009, GCSD students, families, and staff members came together to try to cope with a student suicide. Undoubtedly, there are still strong emotions surrounding this loss. The district's crisis team has met to discuss some serious and lingering issues that may have emanated from this event, including issues of depression, anxiety, and students expressing suicidal thoughts. We have been working closely with mental health professionals from our community and around the region to address these continuing concerns.
