6th grade Erin's Law Lesson – February 27th & 28th

In 2014 the South Carolina Legislation passed Erin’s Law, as part of Health and Safety Education. The purpose of the law is to ensure that all students Pre-Kindergarten through High School receive this prevention instruction during the academic school year. The intent of the law is to equip students with the knowledge and skills to remain safe from sexual assault and how to make a report if an assault occurs.

Instructional units were written as a resource guide for educators to implement Erin’s Law. These units are aligned with the South Carolina Academic Health and Safety Education. Lesson content varies from grade to grade. A copy of each lesson will be available at your child’s school for you to preview if you choose.

Over the next school year your child will be presented this lesson by a counselor. The lesson content is not part of sexuality education and only discusses age appropriate health and safety education.

If you have any further questions after you have previewed the materials please contact your child’s counselor.

En el 2014 la Legislación de Carolina del Sur pasó la Ley de Erin, como parte de la Salud y Seguridad Educacional. El propósito de esta ley es asegurarnos que todos los estudiantes desde Pre Kindergarten a Escuela Superior reciban esta instrucción de prevención durante el año académico. La intención de esta ley es equipar a los estudiantes con el conocimiento y destrezas para permanecer salvos de asalto sexual y como reportar un asalto si esto ocurriera.

Para implementar la Ley de Erin unidades Instruccionales fueron escritas como guía de recurso para maestras. Estas unidades están alineadas con la Educación de Salud y Seguridad de Carolina del Sur. El contenido de la lección varía de grado en grado. Una copia de cada lección estará disponible en el colegio de su hijo para tener una vista previa si usted elige.

Durante las próximas semanas la orientadora/o de su hijo/a presentara esta lección a su estudiante. El contenido de la lección no es parte de educación de sexualidad y solamente discute educación de salud y seguridad de acuerdo a la edad apropiada.

Si usted tiene alguna pregunta después de tener una vista previa de los materiales por favor comuníquese con la orientadora/o de su hijo/a.


Tdap Vaccine

Students entering the seventh grade, who have not received the Tdap vaccine by the beginning of next school year (August 2024), will not be allowed to attend school until they have received the vaccine and provided proof to the school nurse. South Carolina law requires that all students entering the seventh grade receive one (1) dose of Tdap vaccine. Tdap vaccine protects children from three serious diseases: tetanus, diptheria, and pertussis (often called whooping cough). State law began the requirement for the Tdap vaccination in the 2013-14 school year. 

FOR MORE INFORMATION:

Contact the school nurse at your child’s school, call 864-355-3100, or visit greenville.k12.sc.us.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Estudiantes que ingresan al séptimo grado, que no han recibido la vacuna Tdap al partir del próximo año escolar (agosto de 2024), no se les permitirá asistir a la escuela hasta que hayan recibido la vacuna y proporcionado pruebas a la enfermera de la escuela. La ley de Carolina del Sur requiere que todos los estudiantes que ingresan al séptimo grado reciban una (1) dosis de la vacuna Tdap. La vacuna Tdap protege a los niños de tres enfermedades graves: tétanos, difteria y tos ferina. Esta ley estatal que ordena que la vacunación de Tdap sea obligatoria se hizo efectiva durante el año escolar 2013-14.

PARA MÁS INFORMACIÓN:

Comuníquese con la enfermera de la escuela de su hijo/a, llame al 864-355-3100 o visite greenville.k12.sc.us.
