As you know, we're required by the new Erin's Law to provide lessons on sexual abuse and prevention education. In October GP Social Workers will be coming into our classroom to talk about the "Think First & Stay Safe" program. The lessons will cover the concepts of "Using My Built In Computer: Staying Healthy & Safe". In December, the final lesson will be on "Laws Help Protect Me: Kids Have Rights Too!" & "Listening to My Instincts: No Secrets".

Should your child have any questions, you may refer to the handout that will be provided to them on the day of the lesson. If you have additional questions feel free to contact a School Social Worker: Ms. Bilthuis, Mrs. Reiser, & Mrs. Fagan.
