As a reminder, Erin’s Law (House Bill 6193) requires all public schools to implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program. Hawthorn District 73 is hosting the Be Seen and Heard© assembly program for all elementary students during the second week in December. This program is designed to create an age-appropriate, safe, and engaging environment in which students learn the difference between safe and unsafe touch, and the importance of having trusted heroes. Please see this bulletin (English or Español) for additional details about the Be Seen and Heard© program.
