The following is a message from the SMCDSB Director of Education, Brian Beal. 

Dear Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board Parents and Guardians: 
As you may be aware, recently, Netflix released a second season of 13 Reasons Why, a series based on a novel by Jay Asher. The series depicts the story of a high school student who dies by suicide, leaving behind 13 cassette recordings that share the events that she perceives led to her death. The series is graphic and sensationalizes the act of suicide, which may lead to vulnerable students misinterpreting its message. Please follow the link to the full letter.
