Your child has probably brought home a permission form for MFB Child Safety Matters. Child Safety Matters is the new child safety curriculum that is replacing Good Touch, Bad Touch for our county. The program consists of 2 lessons per grade and covers topics such as: safety awareness, shared responsibility for safety, safe adults, types of abuse, red flags, and safety rules. The program also addresses bullying, cyber bullying, digital abuse, digital safety tips, and digital citizenship. Child Safety Matters is a comprehensive, evidence based curriculum that helps students learn new strategies to prevent, recognize, and respond appropriately to the topics mentioned above. I will be implementing these lessons over the course of January and February. If you have any questions about the curriculum, please feel free to contact me.
