Dear Student: Don’t Stay Silent

“Dear Student” is a series of Teacher letters, written anonymously, to a student.

To the amazing students at BHS,

I want you to know that you are loved, you are not alone, and that your teachers are rooting for you to succeed. I have had many students reach out to me recently, at all hours, to tell me that they are not ok. I’m so sad that there are many who are not doing well, but so thankful they reach out to me so I can try to help! I might not be your teacher, but I’m guessing you have a teacher who you think you could possibly reach out to if you needed some advice, comfort, or someone to listen. Don’t stay silent if you feel sad, depressed, anxious, or see yourself heading to a dark place. A friend, teacher, other staff member, coach, parent, etc… can be someone you can lean on. The school also has amazing people who can talk and work with you if you feel like you need more professional help. I know these are very challenging times and I wanted you to know that we see you, we know it can be hard, and we want to be here for you!
