GRADES 1-5 — SPECIAL CLASS FOR KEEPING YOUR CHILDREN SAFE — OCTOBER 16, 2019

In the Church's desire to help you keep your children safe, the Archdiocese requires that all children and young people participating in religious education in any parish or Catholic school in the Archdiocese, be offered instruction in protecting themselves and communicating potential danger to a parent or other responsible adult. 

As such, a special instructional class will be taught as part of your child’s regular religious education curriculum. This class aims to teach children how to be safe, protect themselves, and communicate any potential danger.

The instruction will take place during the regular religious education class time on October 16, 2019. A Diocesan Safe Environment Child and Youth Curriculum will be used for this instruction and will be available for you to see in the parish, RE, or school office and at www.archden.org under Offices/Child & Youth Protection.

If you do NOT want your child to participate in the class on October 16, 2019, we will honor your request. Contact Deacon August Cordova at cordoau@saintjohns.net or 970-635-5818 if you have questions or concerns.
