Hanford West will be participating in the California Healthy Kids Survey. This survey helps promote better health among our youth and combat problems such as drug abuse and violence. The survey gathers information on behaviors such as physical activity and nutritional habits; alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use; school safety; and environmental and individual strengths and assets. It also includes questions regarding planning, or attempting to commit suicide; sexual behavior and practices leading to HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases, and pregnancy. You may examine the questionnaire in the school office or at the District's website. This survey is voluntary and your student does not have to take it. Students who choose to participate only have to answer questions they want to answer and they may stop taking it at any time.
Students will be receiving a form on Friday, October 25th that will have more information regarding the survey and give parents/guardians the opportunity to withdrawal their student from taking the survey if they choose. If a parent/guardian does choose to withdrawal their student the form needs to be returned by November 8th.
