A New Strategy to Keep Kids Safe
You entrust your kids to us every day, so we do our best to keep them safe. That’s why, after careful consideration, we’ve adopted the Second Step Child Protection Unit. The unit is research-based and involves training for adults and lessons for students in grades K-5.
Our whole staff will be taking the adult training, which will help our leadership develop child protection policies and procedures and train all staff to recognize indicators of abuse, respond in a supportive way, and report violations of child protection policies.
The student lesson topics are as follows:
- Lesson 1: Ways to Stay Safe
- Lesson 2: The Always Ask First Rule
- Lesson 3: Safe and Unsafe Touches
- Lesson 4: The Touching Rule
- Lesson 5: Practicing Staying Safe
- Lesson 6: Reviewing Safety Skills
As part of the Child Protection Unit, we’ll also be sending home take-home activities and online videos that can help you reinforce skills and start important discussions with your child. To learn more, watch this short video.
