Special Media Related Announcement

Dear Barton Families,

As many of you have already been made aware through conversations with your children, (District communication) or other media sources, there is a book and a recently released Netflix series called “13 Reasons Why,” which is focused on a teen dying from suicide and revealing the reasons for her death through a series of tapes. You may have seen commentaries on the series in the press. It’s important for our community to be aware of films, social media, apps and other technology that may have an impact on our kids.
