Threat Of Suicide Pact Causes School Safety Concerns

Police will be on hand for the rest of the year at Grant County High School after reports of a possible suicide pact among some students.

School administrators say they are taking the threat seriously. Police will be searching students when they arrive at school so they can make sure everyone stays safe.

Within the past few weeks, two 16-year-old students at the school have committed suicide.

Parents we talked to today say they are concerned about the threat.

School officials are making counselors available and sending home information about suicide prevention. Officials say it is important for parents to talk to their children about suicide.

    We took God out of the classroom, we took respect out, we took prayer out, we let filthy language in, God is not going to let this go unpunished. Where are the Christian people's rights.? Someone needs to stand up for OUR RIGHTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What is going on with our kids? if it's not school shootings, it's sucidie amoung our young adults, people take time to talk with your kids, ensure them they are loved, and you are always there to help. Get involved with school safety, it's better to do something, than nothing at all.

    When they took God out of the schools and out of politics, thats when we founded our country based on those beliefs. God is everywhere according to my religion. Explain to me why schools should be teaching religion when most homes don't teach it. Many people think religion is something they get on Sunday morning. Students have many pressures without the added pressure of serving God while doing a math problem.

    When we took the parents out of the home, we messed up severely. Now we are paying for our choice to make more money and climb in our careers rather than taking the time to instill values/morals and family security in our children. They are wandering around without a clue about family values due to the high divorce rate, our own lack of committment, the media we've created for them and our propensity to give them "things" instead of our time. Forget about what's in the schools. Teach them and guide them at home according to YOUR beliefs and they will take that to school with them where they will be academically educated. Do not place your own parenting failures on the shoulders of the schools or the restriction of religion in them.
