Erin’s Law Presentations Underway
Erin’s Law, House Bill 6193 was signed by Governor Pat Quinn on January 24, 2013. This law requires schools to implement an age-appropriate sexual assault and abuse awareness and prevention curriculum for grades pre-K through 12.
Victor Pacini, a survivor of sexual abuse, an author, songwriter, singer and motivational speaker, will be assisting our schools in implementing this mandate, as he has for the past four years.
Mr. Pacini’s program is developmentally appropriate, interactive, and aligned with learning standards. The focus of his presentation is to teach children basic skills to keep them safe from dangerous or abusive situations.
Every student will have the opportunity to learn from Mr. Pacini.
Maple School students heard him speak on March 8; Wescott School students heard him speak on March 11, and Willowbrook School students will hear him speak on April 2.
If you prefer that your child opt-out of this prevention education session, please email your child’s classroom teacher at Willowbrook School and/or Wescott School. For Maple School students, address your email to Assistant Principal, Betty Holzkopf (email@example.com).
