Home Safety Opportunity: Restricting Lethal Means 
Pick up a FREE lockbox for your handgun, rifle, and/or medication at the Churchill front office, or talk to your student's counselor.
 
Suicide is a leading cause of death among young people in Oregon, and has recently increased in Lane County. The district is working with public health and other partners to provide families with information and resources for suicide prevention.
 
There are steps you can take to help keep your family members safe if they experience an emotional crisis or think about suicide. One important measure is to reduce easy access to things that could be dangerous to them: “lethal means.” Lethal means include firearms, prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, sharp objects, and belts, cords, and cables.
 
Reducing access to lethal means saves lives. Most people who live through a suicide attempt do not later die by suicide. Suicide attempts using firearms are very likely to be fatal.

Firearms, medications, and other lethal means can be restricted by removing them or locking them in secure storage. It is essential that youth cannot know the combination or be able to get the key. Lockboxes are being offered to 4J families at no charge.

Become a Churchill Community Responder
A Churchill Community Responder is a volunteer that responds to “alerts” sent by the 15th Night Coordinator for needs specific to CHS students that internal school resources have not met. These alerts would be for items such as clothing, shoes, small household items, food, or bedding.

A Churchill Community Responder would receive a text message indicating a need. If the Responder can provide the need, they respond to the text message and work with the CHS Coordinator to secure and deliver the item to Churchill High School.

Contact Trista Neuman at Neuman_t@4j.lane.edu.

You can donate items for our students at any time. Donations are accepted at the front office, or you can support our students by ordering items from the Churchill Amazon Wish List.
