Mental Health Instruction
We wanted to take a moment to remind you that per Florida Senate Bill 7030, all students in grades 6-12 will now receive five hours of mental health education. Our district will be utilizing a number of highly qualified local and national community partners to assist in meeting and exceeding these education requirements. One such partner is the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation.
Sandy Hook Promise’s “See Something, Say Something” has outstanding lessons and best practices regarding school safety. In the near future, middle and high school students will be taking part in a lesson that features a 25-minute video (“Say Something”) and a discussion with their teacher. We encourage all families to look over the parent brochure (available in English or Spanish) and look at the video as well. Please consider talking with your child about the importance of being safe at school and how to utilize “See Something, Say Something” as a resource.
