A message from our Superintendent on 13 Reasons Why

In the Kenton County School District, our students’ safety and security are one of our utmost priorities. Last year, we made you aware of a controversial Netflix series about suicide called 13 Reasons Why. Netflix will release the second season of the series on May 18, 2018. This series may raise different emotions, concerns, and questions for our students.
