Erin's Law and Mutual Ground Focus on Child Safety
Erin's Law and Mutual Ground
In response to concerns regarding child safety and vulnerability to sexual abuse, the State of Illinois requires schools to provide instruction in personal safety and awareness of safe/unsafe situations. The law is known as Erin's law and our School District will continue to partner with Mutual Ground, Inc. to provide Personal Body Safety Education instruction to our 1st and 2nd grade classes as part of the district comprehensive plan. Mutual Ground has provided this program in our district and many school districts throughout the area. Additionally, our school social worker, Mrs. Brandt, will be doing the presentation to our kindergarten students. More information about Erin's Law and Mutual Ground is attached to this communication. We look forward to providing this opportunity for our students.
