13 Reasons Why Netflix Series: The Utah State Board of Education wants the following documents shared with all staff, posted on district and school websites and made available to parents:
- 13 Reasons Why Talking Points
- Recommendations for Reporting on Suicide
- Community Resources
- Tips for Talking about Suicide
The bottom line: If a student wants to watch the series, we tell them to watch it with a parent. We are also telling parents to watch it with their child due to the graphic content, language and storyline glamorizing suicide. If a student has already watched the series, we recommend the parent review the Talking Points with them.

Thanks to all those who joined us for our April Early Bird Readers Book Club on Friday, April 14. We had a great turnout of 73 book club members attend this month's book club: 60 students, 8 faculty, and 5 members of the community.
Many thanks to Mrs. Dale, who will be retiring this year, for her many years of heading the Early Bird Readers Book Club here at Riverview. She has graciously compiled a list of her favorite Early Bird Readers Book Club Books for the community, so download from the link below, and happy reading!
