Erin's Law Presentations at WMS

Winnebago Middle School is in partnership with you regarding your child’s safety. In 2013, the state of Illinois passed Erin’s Law, a national mandate for sexual abuse prevention education for students in grades K-12. This year, middle school students will be participating in classroom presentations conducted by Rockford Sexual Assault Counseling. The topics presented will include: a review of the touching rule, a discussion of healthy vs. unhealthy dating relationships, what is sexting and what are the consequences, what is sexual harassment and how is it different from flirting. In addition, the presentation will include how to get help if it happens to you, how to help a friend and what the law says about free counseling sessions for kids ages 12 and up. Parents are encouraged to discuss these topics with them at home. Presentations at Winnebago Middle School will take place on Tuesday, February 20. Parents are invited to attend these sessions, as well. If you’re interested in joining your child’s classroom during their presentation time, please call the school office to confirm the presentation day/time. On the other hand, if you’d like your child opted out of this presentation, please call the school office and leave that information, as well.
