HV suicides inspire parents to start Facebook group
A group of parents in the Monroe-Woodbury School District has formed its own online support group in the wake of the suicides and suicide-related incidents in the district, and last night it met face to face with the school principal to express concerns.
The group, called "Those Who Care," began via a Facebook page after two high school students committed suicide within two weeks of one another, only to be followed by reports of six separate suicide-related in the days surrounding the two deaths.
Parents met last night with the high school principal to express their concerns that Kameron Jacobsen, the 14-year-old student who took his own life, was reportedly bullied, according to a Facebook post penned by Jacobsen's mother.
