South Orangetown Central School District

Five years ago, South Orangetown Middle School health education teacher Vickie Shaw and Library Media Specialist Kimberlee Landgraff developed the “Help Card,” a tool for students to decrease the stigma of asking for help. Customized Help Cards and informational videos are created for each of the district’s four schools to encourage students to ask for help. The 2019-20 district-wide campaign launched today, October 7, with video screenings and card distribution in every building.

Parents are encouraged to view the Help Card video with their children and to reinforce that it is OK to ask for help and that there is always someone who will listen. Students who lose their Help Cards can pick up a new card in their school main office or, for middle and high school students, in the counseling office.

Video links and school contacts are listed below, and posted under “Student Resources” section of the For Students page on each school website.
