Round-up: Marysville steps up plans for mental-health grant, explosion closes Redmond school

Marysville officials step up plans for mental-health grant: The Marysville School District is sharing a $10-million federal grant with three other Washington districts to boost mental health services for students. The grant was awarded prior to the Oct. 24 shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, but state leaders say they will speed up efforts to put the money to use in light of the incident.

Redmond school closed after acid-bomb explosion: A bus driver was injured when an acid bomb exploded Monday morning in the parking lot of a Redmond elementary school. Police officials said the incident appears to be a “prank” or activity typically orchestrated by “juvenile males.”

Marysville deaths show need to reach troubled teens online: A suicide prevention group at the University of Washington is collaborating with social-media companies on how they could help connect distressed young people with mental-health resources. Students at UW are also reaching out to local high school students to help them recognize when a friend’s online activity indicates he or she is in trouble.
