Dear Elmonica Families,
We have finished our second week of in-person (IPH) and CDL instruction! We are so pleased to serve students in a manner that best suits every family.
Our school playground and field are closed all day M-F until after 4:00 pm. We appreciate how well this has been honored during the past two weeks. Thank you!
We are grateful how almost everyone remembers to wear a mask and remain 6 feet apart from non-family members. You are wonderful!
As you are likely aware, Covid-19 cases are on the rise in Washington County. Please be vigilant with following safety protocols to avoid the virus. Thank you for your support.
Please fill out the In-Person HYBRID form linked below to STOP receiving lunch/supper/breakfast meal bags from school. Students will continue to bring food home until the family informs us they no longer wish to receive meal bags.

Health Information for Parents/Gurdians
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 fightchildabuse.org 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.
