BSD Driving Safety

Kids are everywhere. Drive like it.

As students return to schools for in-person learning this month, arrival and departure times may be different than you are used to. While traffic and activities around Beaverton schools may look different, one thing is for sure – kids are out and about in our community. Some kids may be returning to school buildings while others will be continuing to learn remotely and taking breaks outside during the day. Safety is everyone’s responsibility! Kids are everywhere. #DriveLikeIt.

Driving Safety Tips

Our community needs everyone to drive safely, be alert, and follow traffic laws, especially when observing students walking, biking, skateboarding, and scootering. Let’s work together to keep our students safe!

· Stop for school busses when red lights flash. Both directions of traffic must stop.

· Watch your speed. 20 mph is the school zone speed limit.

· Be ready to stop at all times. Kids may dart into the street without checking for traffic.

· Stop for people at intersections and when asked by the crossing guard. Check your blind spots before turning and behind your vehicle before reversing.

· Drive for conditions – This time of year is often rainy and foggy limiting visibility for drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians so keep those headlights on to help others see you.

BSD Letter about our health curriculum

Here in the Beaverton School District, we teach children important skills for getting along with others and doing well in school. In order to help our school be a safe and supportive place where everyone can learn, we also provide age-appropriate health instruction. There will be two primary resources used for this instruction: The Great Body Shop to teach the adopted Oregon Health Standards and to teach sexual abuse prevention in accordance with Erin’s Law. Continue reading for more information on each resource.

Oregon Health Education Standards

The Great Body Shop, published by The Children’s Health Market, will be used to teach the Oregon Health Education Standards. It offers skills-based instruction that addresses physical, social, emotional, and mental health. Human Sexuality Education instruction is age appropriate, medically accurate, and relevant for all students.

Erin’s Law (Sexual Abuse Prevention)

An important component of our curriculum is to help children protect their bodies, get support when abuse has occurred, and report to a trusted adult. In accordance with Erin’s Law, we are educating children about sexual abuse and promoting awareness within our communities. The Oregon Department of Education has required all Oregon schools to comply with Erin’s Law. The Erin’s Law lessons address personal safety, touching safety, and assertiveness.

Previewing Materials/Opting Out

The process for previewing materials and opting out of instruction will be slightly different due to the pandemic. Your child’s teacher will be sending communication home prior to instruction in human sexuality and sexual abuse prevention to address this.

Thank you for helping us to make our school a safe and supportive place where everyone can learn.
