KAUKAUNA, Wis. (WTAQ) - The Kaukauna Area School District says it learned Monday a female student at the high school had taken her own life.

The school is not releasing the student's name or details about her death.

"The Kaukauna Area School District community of learners is deeply saddened by the tragic and unexpected loss of a high school student. Staff and students were notified of this difficult news earlier this morning. The District extends its sincere condolences to the family during this time of mourning," wrote Superintendent Mary Weber Monday.

This is the fifth student at the school to commit suicide since May 2009. Two teachers in the school district also took their life last year.

The Neenah School District is hosting parent/community presentation on teen depression and suicide Wednesday. "It Takes a Village" will be from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the high school.

The presentation will include a speaker from the Community for Hope in the Fox Cities. The non-profit group focuses on suicide prevention and was formed in response to the string of teen suicides at Kaukauna High School and in the Fox Cities.
