Parent Letters went home the week of September 22, 2018 with information about the Personal Safety curriculum. Please see the information below:
September 21, 2018
Your child's safety and well-being is a primary concern for all of us. We share your hope that children learn and grow in a safe and secure learning enviornment. As you may know, Personal Safety is taught each year to students from Kindergarten to 6th grade - this year it will be taught between October 1 and November 2, 2018
Your child's teacher will be giving a series of short lessons centering on aspects of Personal Safety. These lessons will include Internet Safety, as well as, maintaining safety with strangers and friends, recognizing appropriate and inappropriate touch, saying "NO!" to in appropriate touching and identifying sources of help and support available to children. If you wish to see the Internet Safety information, we encourage you to log on to www.NetSmartz.org. There are additional materials for parents, as well as follow up materials for students.
If you have questions or would like to preview the Personal Safety curriculum materials, or if you have concerns about your child's participation in the Personal Safety unity, you do have the right to have your child "opt out". Please know that your request will be honored without embarrassment to your child.
You can "opt out" by signing a Student Exclusion form available in the Westview Office. If you have any questions please call our school counselor, Liz Johnson at 354-4271.
