EAST JACKSON — Madison County deputies rushed to Rose Hill Middle School Monday after reports of a student suffering from mental health issues. “We got a call from the school resource officer that someone attempted to hang themselves there in the school,” Sheriff John Mehr said. Deputies said the student suffered non-life threatening injuries and the parents of the student were contacted. The sheriff said after a mental evaluation is completed, the school and parents will determine what happens next. The school gave limited information, and other parents were not notified. Charlie Smith, who picked up his niece after school, said he had no idea there had been an incident on campus. “I think somebody should’ve been called just to let us know what’s going on,” Smith said. District leaders would not comment on their policy regarding these types of incidents.
