5th grade HIV/STD presentation

NOTICE OF HIV/STD PREVENTION EDUCATION CLASS

Dear Parent/Legal Guardian:
In response to the growing threat of HIV to our population, the 1988 Washington State Legislature mandated that a program of prevention education be presented to student’s yearly, beginning with the 5thgrade. The Sequim School District #323 has adopted an appropriate program for HIV/STD prevention education with the advice of educators, parents, and community members.
Greywolf Elementary School 5th graders will be attending an HIV/STDclass on Friday, March 22nd. The boys will be taught by Mr. Hastings. The girls will be taught by Mrs.Wycoff. Both classes will be taught the last hour of the day, 2:00- 3:00pm.
Two parent preview meeting were held in January to allow parents to preview the curriculum.
STATE LAW PROVIDES THAT A PARENT OR GUARDIAN MUST ATTEND SUCH A MEETING BEFORE THEY CAN HAVE THEIR CHILD OR LEGAL WARD EXCUSED FROM PARTICIPATION IN THE HIV PREVENTION PROGRAM.
 
If you have any questions, please call Sonja Bittner, School Nurse at
