Announcement regarding changes in Health and Human Sexuality Unit

Dear parents,

Due to the transition to online learning, we will be modifying the topics for our health unit. You probably received a letter with the original topics with your child’s grade card, please disregard those topics for this school year. The following is a list of topics that we will focus on. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

7th Grade topic-

  • 7th grade - "Stranger Danger" - what could happen if you are talking to people you do not know online?

All grades – (Pearson Book)

  • Smoking/Vaping
  • Substance abuse - alcohol and other drugs
  • Skin safety - (I'm dubbing it Summer Safety Tips - we could add why we should drink water, etc.)
  • Infectious Diseases - how they spread - why it is important to wash your hands
  • Non-infections diseases (just so they see not everything is contagious/to be afraid of.)
