Child Safety Parent Presentation Feb. 21
In response to concerns regarding child safety and vulnerability to sexual abuse, the State of Illinois requires schools to provide instruction in personal safety and awareness of safe/unsafe situations. This law is known as Erin's law. This year, our School District is partnering with Mutual Ground, Inc. to provide Personal Body Safety Education instruction to our Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade classes as part of the district comprehensive plan. Mutual Ground has provided this program in many school districts throughout our area and we look forward to this opportunity for our students. Builta's social worker, Mallory Peck, will present to our kindergarten students.
To provide you with more information regarding this program, the School District and Mutual Ground are providing a parent presentation on February 21st from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Welch Elementary School (2620 Leverenz Rd. Naperville)
This presentation will be the time to hear all about the grade level presentations, as well as an excellent opportunity to learn about what we can do as parents and as a community to help prevent child sexual abuse. This program is for parents only. Spanish translation will be available at the meeting.
Builta's student presentations will occur in May. You will receive additional notification about classroom presentations as well as information about your right to opt out for your child at that time.
