November Guidance Lesson: Personal Safety

Personal Safety

Dear Parents,

This month in classroom guidance lessons in PreK-Grade 5, the counselors will be teaching lessons about personal safety. This includes learning about what safe, unsafe, and unwanted touches mean, what the safety steps are, that secrets are not okay, and it is never too late to tell about a touching problem.

A letter will be coming home in Friday folders that will describe in more detail about the lessons, what will be covered, and the safety steps. This letter will also be posted in the Elementary E-news that goes out on Fridays via email. Please also plan on joining the parent training that will be held on November 18 at 8:00-9:00am and 6:30-7:30pm. This will be a more in-depth parent workshop that will cover our child safeguarding board policy and procedures. Please be on the lookout for more information about this.

Thank you for your support and partnership in keeping our students and children safe.
