The popular show titled "13 Reasons Why" has returned to Netflix for a second season. While the show appeals to middle and high school aged viewers, its content is rated for mature audiences and references suicide, violence and other adult themes. Blaine School District does not encourage or discourage (nor does it endorse) the viewing of this television series. That decision is between parents and their child(ren). We want to provide some resources for families and remind you that our school staff are available for any student or family who needs support.

Please reach out to your child's principal or school counselor if you have any questions or if your child needs support.
