This is an important topic for all of us. On our Talk Tuesday, we shared information about how the topic of child protection and body safety is taught to students at BFIS, as well as some tips on how you can start this conversation at home. Our goal is to keep students safe by empowering them with knowledge and skills while maintaining age-appropriate conversations. We look forward to more discussions with you about this and other topics in our Tuesday Talks..
Friendly Reminder for BFIS families, if ever you feel the need to report any information to the school to keep children safe and out of harm’s way, you may fill out our See Something Say Something Form.
