HIV Parent Night

NOTICE OF HIV/AIDS PREVENTION EDUCATION PROGRAM MEETING AND WHAT IT TAKES TO EXCUSE YOUR CHILD OR LEGAL WARD

Dear Parent/Legal Guardian:
In response to the growing threat of AIDS to our population, the Washington state Legislature mandated that a program of prevention education be presented to students yearly beginning with the 5th grade and continuing through 12th grade. The Sequim School District #323 has adopted an appropriate program for HIV prevention education with the advice of educators, parents, and community members.

Two meetings will be held in order for you to preview the HIV prevention education program and videos that your student will see. The first showing is on Tuesday, October 7th, 2014 starting at 5:30 p.m. in the Helen Haller Elementary Library. The second will be held on Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 starting at 5:30 p.m. in the Greywolf Elementary Library. The grades will be presented as follows:

5th grade: 5:30-6:00 p.m.
6th grade: 6:00-6:30 p.m.
7th and 8th grade: 6:30-7:00 p.m.
9th grade: 7:00-7:30 p.m.
10th & 11th grades: written information only available between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.
12th grade: 7:30-8:00 p.m.

You will be asked to sign in, and following a preview of the materials, parents who wish to have their child excused from participation in the HIV prevention program may sign a release form provided at the meeting.

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.
