Personal Safety Program
Our program, with its emphasis on personal safety, is geared toward teaching students how to differentiate between good and bad touch and to assert their rights to protect themselves from unsafe personal situations.
The Safe Touch Rules, as well as the Safety Theme chart and posters below outline the safety content that your child(ren) will learn during classroom lessons in grades 1, 2, 3 and 4. Classroom lessons will be primarily facilitated by your child's school counselor.
You are invited to create an account to explore the vast amount of resources and ways to talk to your child(ren) about these very sensitive but important issues.

Safe Touch Rules
Rule #1: It is never okay for grownups or older kids to touch your private body parts – except to keep you healthy and clean.
Rule #2: If an older kid or grownup wants you to touch his/her private body parts or asks to touch your private body parts and tells you to keep it a secret, say NO!, GO and TELL an adult you trust right away. If the first person you talk to does not believe you, tell someone else.
Rule #3: Anytime you feel mixed-up or confused about a touch, tell the person to stop and talk to a grownup you trust about it.
