REMINDER: Healthy Kids Survey Permission (Grades 3-6)

Please fill out this google form below if your student is currently attending 3rd-6th grade.

This form is due by Tuesday February 14

English Permission Form and Spanish Permission Form

Your child is being asked to be a part of our school’s California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), sponsored by the California Department of Education (CDE). This is a very important survey that will help promote better health and well-being among our youth, improve the school learning environment, and combat problems such as drug abuse and violence. Your child does not have to take the survey. Participation is voluntary and requires your permission.

Survey Content

The survey gathers information on developmental supports provided to youth; school connectedness and barriers to learning, as well as behaviors such as physical activity and nutritional habits; alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use; and school safety.

You may examine the questionnaire in the school office.
