KAUKAUNA - The Kaukauna Area School District says it learned Monday a female student at the high school had taken her own life.
The school is not releasing the student's name or details about her death.
This is the fifth student at the school to commit suicide since May 2009. Two teachers also took their life last year.
"The District extends its sincere condolences to the family during this time of mourning," wrote Superintendent Mary Weber.
Weber say counseling services are being provided to students and staff who desire them.
The Neenah School District is hosting a parent and community presentation on teen depression and suicide Wednesday. "It Takes a Village" will be from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the high school.
The presentation will include a speaker from the Community for Hope in the Fox Cities. The non-profit group focuses on suicide prevention and was formed in response to the string of teen suicides at Kaukauna High School and in the Fox Cities. The president of the organization says it is often a tough issue to address because of the stigma surrounding depression and other mental health issues.
"They learned that they should be strong and independent, that they should be able to handle these issues," said Mary Sullivan. "That's not always the case. People need to be able to reach."
