HIV EDUCATION PARENT PREVIEW NIGHT

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 for you to preview the District’s HIV prevention education program and videos that your student might see. The first showing is on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 starting at 5:00 pm in the Helen Haller Library. The second will be held on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 starting at 5:00 pm in the Greywolf Elementary Library. The grades will be presented as follows:

5th grade: 5:00-5:30pm 6th grade: 5:30-6:00pm 7th & 8th grade: 6:00-7:00pm
Curriculum & videos available for preview in Library
9th, 10th, 11th, & 12th grade 5:00 – 7:00pm
Curriculum & videos available for preview in Library

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.
