High School Deaths

Pine Creek High School officials are urging parents to look for signs of unusual behavior in their children following the deaths of three students in recent months.

Grief counselors were at the school Monday and parents were to be informed of potential signs of depression after the latest death -- a suicide on a charter school playground.

Colorado Springs police and District 20 officials say the 17-year-old boy was found hanging from a swing set at Classical Academy Monday. Classes were canceled while police investigated.

A student died of a medical problem in December and a 15-year-old boy died last month when he broke through thin ice on a pond at a golf course.
