Information for Healthful Living Students (Spring 2024)

Apex Friendship High Families,

You are receiving this information because your student is presently enrolled in Healthful Living in the spring semester.

During the next few weeks, Healthful Living classes will receive a presentation from our student services / counseling team related to the Signs of Suicide.  This letter will be sent home with students, but we are sending this email to ensure that parents receive it.  Also, the counseling team wants to proactively share this self screening tool that will be used as a part of the lesson.  This is a lesson that is delivered across the district to all 9th grade students.

While we see value in the information being presented, please know that AFHS is committed to respecting the decision of any parent who does not wish their student to participate in this lesson.  Please communicate that to SAP Counselor Ms. Burden (  You may also reach out to Ms. Burden with any questions about the SOS lesson.


Brian Pittman, Principal
