The SSCD Staff are committed to supporting parents and students through all of life's triumphs and challenges in prayer and protective measures.
Heavenly Father, thank you for being our protector, our ever-present help in times of trouble. Your word says that you are faithful, you will not abandon us in what we believe we cannot bear. When we feel hopeless, you have promised that you will provide a way out so that we can endure. Grant us protection and guidance of these precious children. Give us the strength and wisdom to overcome everything that stands against them. Sustain us through your unfailing love. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
In this commitment, our staff will complete the four (4) hours of training in youth suicide awareness and prevention that is required every five (5) years for professional educators in school buildings serving students in grades six through twelve.
