Brookvale Sex Ed Parent Information for Grades 4-6
Posted 5/6/20

May 6, 2020

 

Dear Parent/Guardian: 

 

The Fremont Unified School District Board of Education and our school faculty believe it is important for students to assume responsibility for their own health and well-being. They benefit from instruction that fosters the development of positive health behaviors and the prevention of negative unhealthy behaviors. FUSD’s Comprehensive Health, Puberty, and Sexuality Education (CHPSE) curriculum focuses on information that is essential for students’ well-being. This course of study conforms strictly to the guidelines provided by the California State Education Code 51933 and the California Healthy Youth Act.  

 

These lessons will be taught by school district staff during the week of:  May 26, 2020

 

State law allows you to remove your student from part or all of the Comprehensive Health, Puberty, and Sexuality lessons. If you do not want your student to participate in all or part of the Comprehensive Health, Puberty, and Sexuality education program, you must provide, in writing (email or on paper), a note to your student’s teacher by Friday, May 22nd.

 

Many schools teach this curriculum in the spring. Our current distance learning format requires us to be selective about what can be taught safely and effectively outside a classroom, so we will be teaching a subset of the lessons at most grade levels using online and independent activities. Students whose families prefer to opt them out of the lessons will not participate in the activities based on these lessons. Links to the curriculum, opt-out information, and parent resources, can be found at: https://www.fremont.k12.ca.us/HealthResources.

 

Thank you,

Malinda Elliott

Brookvale Elementary Principal
