Steller Secondary School will be teaching Semester 1 Personal Safety lesson on November 20th in a grade level setting. The age-appropriate lesson will be presented in a non-threatening way, along with the skills needed for self-protection. The lesson content is part of the Anchorage School District’s plan to enact the Alaska Safe Children’s Act and will be handled in a sensitive, respectful manner.
If you have any questions about the content of the program or if you wish to inquire about opting out, please contact your child’s advisor or the school office.
Thank you for partnering with us as we continue to provide learning opportunities to improve the safety and well being of our students.
