In accordance with Erin’s Law (House Bill 6193), which requires all public schools to implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program, the District is hosting the Be Seen and Heard© assembly program for all elementary students during the second week in December. This assembly is designed to create an age-appropriate, safe, and engaging environment in which students learn the difference between safe and unsafe touch, and the importance of having trusted heroes.
