Social workers from Kids Talk, with expertise in the area of child abuse prevention, will present the program in our school. Trained mental health professionals will be on site at the school during the program to speak with any children who express safety concerns after the presentation. Per Indiana law, any disclosures of suspected child abuse or neglect must be reported to the Indiana Department of Child Services.

If you do not want your child to participate in Body Boundaries, you MUST complete an opt-out form. Please contact Mrs. Terry Miller, School Social Worker, for a copy of this form. All opt-out forms must be returned to the school office.
