HIV/AIDS Preview Notice

Notice of HIV/AIDS  Prevention Education Program meeting and what it takes to excuse your child or legal ward.


In response to the growing threat of HIV/AIDS to our population, the 1988 Washington State Legislature mandated that a program of prevention education be presented annually in all public schools to students in 5th through 12th grades.


A Meeting will be held on Tuesday January 28, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in the Creston School library. Parents will have an opportunity to preview the 5th – 8th grade curriculum and instructional materials. This information may help you and your child have meaningful family discussions both before and after the classroom presentation.


Following a preview of the materials, parents who wish to excuse their child from participation in the HIV/AIDS Prevention class may sign a release form. State law provides that a parent or guardian must attend such a meeting before they can have their child or legal ward excused from participation in the HIV/AIDS prevention class.


The curriculum will be presented by our school nurse; Robin Higginbotham-Jasman R.N.
