Meningococcal and HPV Letter to Parents Grades 6-12
As of July 2005, schools in Washington State are required to provide information on meningococcal disease to parents or guardians of all students entering Grades 6-12. In 2007, Washington State required public schools to provide information on human papillomavirus (HPV) and its vaccine to parents of students in Grades 6–12. Note these are only informational requirements. Attached you will find the Combination HPV and Meningococcal Information Letter for 2014-15 in English, Spanish, and Russian.
Healthy Youth Survey to be administered in October.
Battle Ground Public Schools is participating in the Washington State 2014 Healthy Youth Survey during the week of October 13-17. The Healthy Youth Survey (HYS) includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks. The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State. Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous. A letter will be mailed to the families of students that are in participating grade levels containing information about the survey. If you would like additional information please view the HYS 2014 Parent Flyer or visit http://www.askhys.net/.
