Healthy Youth Survey: October 26th for 6th and 8th graders

Our school is participating in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey this fall.

 

The survey will be given to students in grades 6 and 8 during Advisory Class on Tuesday, October 26th.

 

The Healthy Youth Survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, sexual behaviors, abuse, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services.

 

Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks. Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.

 

Please read the Parent and Student Notification Letter for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.

 

If you do not want your student to participate in the survey or have any questions, you can email Shawn Lawrence, Assistant Principal. Students can also tell their teacher that they do not want to take the survey.  Students not taking the survey will take part in a different activity, such as studying or reading in the library. There is no penalty for not taking part in the survey. Your student’s grades will not be affected.

 

Thank you!
