Empowering God's Children- Teaching Safety Opt Out Form

Empowering God's Children- Teaching Safety Opt Out Form

Saint Clare of Assisi will present a sexual abuse prevention program, Empowering God's Children- Teaching Safety, to our students.

This program is provided to us by the Diocese of Charleston and is a part of our ongoing effort to help create and maintain safe environments for all children and youth in our care.

The scheduled lesson is being offered to all students during or right before your children's normal class. As parents, you have the right to choose whether your child participates in the program. We encourage you to read the “overview” and “lesson plan” assigned to your child’s age group to understand exactly what your child will be taught. This year we will be teaching Lesson 4- Secrets, Surprises and Promises. You can view the lessons with the link http://tncrrg.virtus.org/touchingsafety/charleston.cfm.

It is important to note, this is basic prevention education and is in no way to be considered sex education or education on private body parts. Neither of these components fall within our educational mandate to provide your child with the information needed to keep them safe from those who would do them harm.

If you wish to “opt” your child out of the prevention education session, please complete this form no later November 1.
