Teen Lures Prevention

Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

We all share a common goal for our children to be safe and protected from all things harmful. Related to that goal, Senate Bill 401 requires annual age-appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention in kindergarten through grade 9. Teen LuresTM Prevention is a research-based program that Gwinnett County Public Schools uses to teach the importance of healthy relationships and its connection to personal safety by way of class discussions, student handouts, video clips and corresponding activities. The program curriculum was submitted and reviewed by the Community Health Education Advisory Committee. The purpose of the Teen LuresTM Prevention program is to enable students to take an active and necessary role in making healthy choices and protecting themselves from unhealthy relationships. A committee of professional school counselors reviewed the program and selected components that were appropriate for middle school.

During the month of November, our school counselors will offer lessons from the Teen LuresTM Prevention program to students in grades 6-8. You can learn more about the program at Please be aware that more information is provided on the website than is actually used in our schools. Students will review what was learned in previous grade(s) and then discuss the following lures:


Game Lure


Name Lure

Emergency Lure


Authority Lure

Assistance Lure

Ego/Fame Lure


Affection Lure

Trafficking Lure

Pet Lure

If you prefer that your child not participate in the Teen LuresTM Prevention lessons, please send an email to indicating your preference. Unless written documentation is received, your child will have the opportunity to participate in the teen lures prevention and safety lessons. As always, counselors are available to discuss any concerns you might have.

We are excited to announce that our school district has adopted a new form of school-to-home communication called ParentSquare. This unified communications platform is designed to keep parents and guardians informed and encourage greater engagement and connection with your child’s school and Gwinnett County Public Schools.

ParentSquare provides a safe way for district administrators, school principals, teachers, staff, and parents to receive and send information, such as:

  • Weather-related closings & delays
  • School and class information
  • Share pictures and files

  • Upcoming class activities

District and school information will now be sent to your computer or phone via email and/or text via ParentSquare. For even more convenience, download the ParentSquare app (available for free for iOS and Android devices). Please note that some schools and teachers may still use other district-approved tools for the 2023-2024 school year to communicate with their families.

Medical Authorization

A parent or guardian must bring any / all medications to the school and fill out a medication administration form. Students are not allowed to carry any medications with them at school or on the bus. This includes any over the counter medication, for example; cough drops, Tylenol, etc. If you would like your child to have any OTC medication left in the clinic, you must bring to school with a completed medical authorization form.

To give us authorization to give your student their medication you will need to complete the Medication Authorization Form. You may print it, complete it, and bring it in or you can pick one up to complete in the clinic. A separate form is required for each individual medication.

If your student requires an inhaler and/or an Epi-pen you will need to complete the appropriate form.

For your student to be permitted to carry their inhaler and/or Epi-pen on their person, their physician will need to complete the section of our form advising us of their authorization. If the student will be carrying their inhaler and/or Epi-pen on their person, we ask that you also provide the clinic with a backup in case one is needed.
