School district stepping up services

WINNEMUCCA — The Humboldt County School District is increasing services to students following the suicide of a Lowry High School sophomore on Friday (Jan. 14). The suicide followed what authorities described as an attempted suicide four days prior.  Both events are still under investigation and involve juveniles so very little information has been released to the public.

According to Superintendent Mike Baumgartner, counselors from Nevada Mental Health will meet with faculty before classes begin on Tuesday (Jan. 18) in order to help guide them in discussing the events of last week with their students.
