Please see below from Student Support Services.  My recommendation for parents with kids that want to watch this show would be to watch with their kids.  If that isn't possible I recommend that you watch so you can talk about it with them.

Thanks,

Mr. Brown

 

 

This past Friday, May 18, 2018, Netflix will be releasing Season 2 of the television series based on Jay Asher’s 2007 book “Thirteen Reasons Why.”  This season is anticipated to be both popular and potentially triggering for young people, especially to already vulnerable students.  We are notifying you of this event to enable you and your family to make informed decisions regarding viewing this series.

 

The makers of this show, Netflix, have not confirmed details about what to expect from Season 2. After the first season’s graphic depiction of suicide, early indications are that this season will touch upon highly sensitive subjects: adolescent bullying, rejection, heartbreak, sexual assault, abuse, revenge, gun violence, how culture and society shapes femininity/masculinity, depression, and unsuccessful efforts to find help or understanding. According to reports, Season 2 will follow how the characters deal and cope with Hannah Baker’s death by suicide in Season 1. Netflix has issued warnings about the series regarding its strong content and have also added new resources to their website 13ReasonsWhy.info, including an updated discussion guide and a new discussion series where cast members address issues like bullying, sexual assault, and drug abuse.  It is unknown how the television series will ultimately address these issues.  Based on the response to the first season, the mental health community anticipates a similar increase of youth in need of support following the release of the second season.

 

Please note that mental health professionals and staff do not recommend viewing this series, but want you to be aware of its existence for the mental health of your student.

 

If your teen chooses to watch the series, it is advised that an adult view and discuss it with them to assist in processing the content. Netflix tends to open all episodes for immediate viewing so parents should also consider metered viewing of this series to allow time to process and discuss reactions and feelings that may arise.  We have included some themes, questions and talking points to help with dialogue.  Also included are some national and local resources for your reference. These resources were developed with the help of Stanford University, Project Safety Net and San Mateo and Santa Clara County Behavioral Health Departments in collaboration with national suicide prevention organizations to develop ways in which families can help guide their students should they decide to watch. 

 

If you have any questions, please connect with your school’s mental health counselor or administrator.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“13 Reasons Why, Season 2” Viewing Resources

 

Viewing Guidance for Families by National Association of School Psychologists

  • Ask your child if they have heard or seen the series. 
  • If they have or are interested, tell them that you want to watch it with them or to catch up, and discuss their thoughts.
  • Listen and respond to your children’s comments without judgement.  Doing so requires that you fully concentrate, put your opinions aside, seek to understand and remember what is said.
  • If they exhibit any warning signs for suicide, don’t be afraid to ask if they have thought about suicide, or if someone is hurting them.  Raising the issue of suicide does not increase the risk or plant the idea, on the contrary, it creates the opportunity to offer help.
  • Ask your child if they think any of their friends or classmates exhibit warning signs. Talk with them about how to seek help for a friend or classmate.
  • Get help from a mental health professional if you are concerned for your child’s safety or the safety of one of their peers.

 

Possible themes to explore:

  • Have you ever experienced anything that reminds you of what any of these characters are going through?
  • Who are the safe, trusted adults you feel you can go to if you are feeling overwhelmed or have concerns about one of your friends? 
  • If you could talk to any of the characters, who would you want to talk to? What would you want to say to them? 

  • What are situations from the series when young people acted in heroic or empathic ways? 

  • If you were Hannah, what words or actions might have helped you survive? 

  • If you were Hannah, what might have helped you make different decisions? 

  • If you could rewrite history -- or even just one event in each one of the episodes, what would 
you rewrite? In the first? In the second? In the third? Why is that event so important?” 


 

Further discussion guides for talking with teens about some of the show’s topics:

 

Suicide Prevention Community Concerns

Suicide is complex. Suicide is never anyone’s fault. The series does not emphasize that common among suicide deaths is the presence of treatable mental illness. Suicide is not the simple consequence of stressors or coping challenges, but rather it is most typically a combined result of treatable mental illness and overwhelming or intolerable stressors. The series includes a graphic depiction of a suicide without addressing mental illness or alternatives to suicide. Additionally there are concerns around how the series blames the character’s suicide on others, failed attempts to seek help, adults that do not respond appropriately, and the apparent glamorization of suicide including unrecommended practices of memorialization.

The city has put in place new "NO U-Turn" signs at the Driscoll and St. Anthony intersection between the hours of 7AM and 9AM.  Please proceed all the way up to Mission to make a U-Turn at the stoplight (this is both safer and faster anyway.)

 

I stepped out to give some reminders about the new signs this morning.  Fremont Police say they will be by in the next week to help reinforce these changes.

 

Thanks

Science Olympiad allows a school to field up to 3 teams.  As agreed upon last year Hopkins will have one team remain in place for consistency and mentoring purposes year to year.

 

This means we will have two more teams (if we are able to get parent coaches) that will be made up of 15 students each.  A test and lottery will determine which 30 students are part of the teams.

 

At this point I am looking for parents interested in coaching a team.

Food Trucks will be here at 5pm.  Arrive early to park and get some food (or just go straight to the dessert.)

 

Please report to your student's first period classroom (Gym for P.E.) in time for our 6:30 p.m. start.  Due to space constraints, there will not be a large group meeting. 

 

We anticipate our usual large turnout and, therefore, ask that only parents attend Back-to-School Night.  If seating is at capacity for any period, it is suggested that only one parent per student attend that class so that all students can be represented comfortably.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

I hope the First Day of School went well for you and your family. We are excited to start the school year and are looking forward to the coming months. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or issues so far.

As I’m sure you are aware, an Excessive Heat Advisory has been declared throughout the Bay Area for today and tomorrow. The safety of your children while on our campus is always priority number one among our staff. We are looking at a number of ways to deal with the weather including limiting outdoor activity to shady/covered areas, indoor, low-impact PE classes, and encouraging students to drink plenty of water during the day. Hydration is crucial during this time so please consider a few extra glasses of water this evening and before school tomorrow morning.

For those of you with children participating in Fall Sports games or practices, we are in contact with the California Interscholastic Federation regarding options for conducting practices and games in the safest conditions possible. Practices for Friday and Saturday have been cancelled and adjustments to games scheduled for those days will be made to account for the heat.

We appreciate your cooperation and support as we kick off the school year and work through these temporary high temperatures. Please call the front office with any concerns.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Principal, Brown

Hello Hawknation,

 

A big shout out and thank you to our PFA team of volunteers that was out in force to help direct traffic this morning.  A few early reminders as we kick off the year...Our website is full of information (lunch, bell schedules, calendar, daily bulletin).

 

1.)  Lunch drop off.  Please use the visitor parking lot (near the portables) and drop lunch off in the cart and then leave campus.  We recommend sending a lunch with students or purchasing here at school to maximize their lunch time.

 

2.)  The morning drop off went well.  Please remember the main loop of the school is not open for student drop off.  The horseshoe loop to the west of the school (towards Paseo Padre) is your best and safest bet.  Please remember to pull up all the way on Driscoll Blvd if dropping off along the curb.  The volunteers love smiles and waves.  Take your time.  Be safe!

 

3.)  Afternoon pick up.  There is no parking in the RED BUS ZONE after school.  This is considered and active loading zone and fines double if your are in this space.  Once the buses leave we stop monitoring this section and you can pick up along the curb.  Students may not get into your car while you are in the middle of a lane.  Again use the horseshoe loop or park across the street from the school.

 

4.)  Please register on School Loop (click login from the homepage of our website)

 

Lastly, thank you for partnering with us in the education of your kids.  It is our pleasure and honor.  Please call or email the office if you have any questions.

 

--Mr. Brown

Safely Viewing the Solar Eclipse

 

Monday, August 21st, a partial eclipse will be visible in every state in the U.S. and a total solar eclipse, which is when the Moon completely covers the Sun, will occur across 14 states along a 70-mile-wide swath of the country. If you are NOT on the path of Totality during the Solar Eclipse, you may be tempted to look at the sun during this event.  You cannot safely look at any of it, not even for a minute. You need eye protection. Permanent eye damage can result from looking straight at the sun- even for as little as 30 seconds. Using binoculars or an unfiltered telescope to directly view the sun is even more dangerous and can cause permanent blindness in just a second or two. 

Click this link for more information about safely viewing the Solar Eclipse.

 

NASA recommends that people who plan to view the eclipse should check the safety authenticity of viewing glasses to ensure they meet basic proper safety viewing standards.

Eclipse viewing glasses and handheld solar viewers should meet all the following criteria:

·      Have certification information with a designated ISO 12312-2 international standard

·      Have the manufacturer’s name and address printed somewhere on the product

·      Not be used if they are older than three years, or have scratched or wrinkled lenses

·      Not use homemade filters

·      Ordinary sunglasses -- even very dark ones -- should not be used as a replacement for eclipse viewing glasses or handheld solar viewers

At this time there is NO plan to change 8th grade promotion.  This is a PFA event that will need your support with volunteer time and donations.  Your promotion donation covers two main events for 8th graders.  The bulk of the money helps to pay for the promotion party for students.  The remainder is for decorations and rentals for the formal stage promotion ceremony.  Neither of these events can happen without your help.

 

Survey results from both students and parents showed an interest in keeping the promotion ceremony.

 

Thank you,

 

--Mr. Brown

Dear Hopkins Families,

 

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the passing of one of our long time teachers.  Ms. Ronna Claymon, Spanish teacher and Department Chair of Electives passed away over the weekend.

 

Over her 35 year career she taught, tutored, and mentored thousands of students.  Some of you may have had the privilege of being in her class.  Many of you may have had siblings or relatives that came in contact with Ms. Claymon over the years and there are certainly many students attending Mission San Jose High school that were in her class.  Know that Hopkins is here for you.

 

For some of our students, this may be their first encounter with someone who passed away.  I encourage you to share this news with your student and talk to them about their thoughts and feelings associated with Ms. Claymon.  As we approach the beginning of school, we will make every effort to maintain regular classroom instruction and we will also provide support to those students who need someone to talk to.  At the start of the year, I will communicate to my staff an action plan on how we will respond to the needs of our students who may need additional support.

 

This loss has been a shock to the entire staff (and community) and we are all grieving.  Your kind thoughts are appreciated at this time.

 

When information regarding a memorial service becomes available I will be sure to share it with you.  This community has always been able to band together during tough times.  It will be needed in the coming days.  If there is anything Mrs. Moore or I can do to help you--please let us know.

 

On behalf of the entire Hopkins staff we wish to share our deepest condolences.

 

--Mr. Brown and Mrs. Moore

March 2017

 

Dear Parent/Guardian

 

On February 8th, the FUSD Board of Education adopted a Student Safety Resolution stating that all Fremont students are entitled to a public education, regardless of their parents’ actual or perceived national origin, citizenship, or immigration status.

 

This resolution re-affirms the Fremont Unified School District’s Stance against discrimination, bullying and harassment in and out of the classroom. Fremont Unified is committed to the success of all students, irrespective of their ability, beliefs, ethnicity, gender identification, immigration status, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status. A copy of the Resolution is available at http://bit.ly/FUSDStudentSafety.

 

Every student has the right to attend school in a safe and secure environment. Our district, schools and community have an obligation to promote a mutual respect that supports dignity and equality. To that end, Fremont Unified has policies, procedures and practices in place that are designed to reduce and eliminate discrimination and harassment, as well as to quickly address incidents when they occur.

 

I encourage any student who believes they have been subjected to any form of harassment, including acts based on race, color, or national origin, by District staff, students, or a third-party, to contact a school administrator. All reports will be taken very seriously and investigated thoroughly.

 

By working together to respect and embrace the diversity that makes Fremont such a unique and special community, every student will receive the educational opportunity they deserve.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Jim Morris

Superintendent
