STEPS TO IMMEDIATELY FOLLOW WHEN THE RISK OF SUICIDE HAS BEEN RAISED
STEP 1: Do not leave the student alone. Stay with student or designate another adult to stay with student. If the student is in imminent danger (has access to a weapon, is on a rooftop, or in other unsafe conditions), call 911.
STEP 2: Take immediate action by contacting:
a. Primary site contact: Your child's counselor. Click HERE for contact info
b. Secondary site contact (if unable to reach primary): Principal's Secretary ext.6001
c. On-campus administrator (if unable to reach primary/secondary):Click HERE for contact info
d. If above contacts cannot be reached, contact district office: (760) 753-6491 x. 5570, 5556
STEP 3: Remain with student until the contact person (or designee) is with the student. Once under the supervision of contact staff (counselor, school psychologist, school social worker or designee) SDUHSD’s “Protocol for Helping a Student At Risk of Suicide” will be followed.
STEP 4: Only if after school hours: stay with student, immediately contact parent and stay with student until parent arrives. If unable to reach parent, stay with student and call 911. If non-school hours and you are not with student but are notified student is suicidal, call 911 and then notify primary site contact
