Teen Talk High School Sexuality Education Course in PE Classes
We are pleased to inform you that your child will have the opportunity to participate in the Teen Talk High School course in their Physical Education class beginning on Monday April 11, 2022. Teen Talk High School is a comprehensive sexuality education program developed by trained professionals in the field of sexuality education at Health Connected (www.health-connected.org)
Teen Talk High School is a comprehensive sexuality education course, designed to provide an open forum for teenagers to ask questions and get medically-based, unbiased, and accurate information. Teen Talk High School complies with California Education Codes 51930-51939 (California Healthy Youth Act of 2015) and meets the California Health Education Content Standards under “Growth, Development and Sexual Health.”
Teen Talk High School covers the following topics:
- Values Clarification
- Sexual and Reproductive Anatomy
- Abstinence/Not Having Sex
- Parent/Guardian Communication
- BE PREPARED FOR A HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT WHICH INVOLVES YOUR CHILD DISCUSSING THESE ISSUES WITH YOU
- Healthy Relationships
- Birth Control, including a condom demonstration
- Pregnancy Options
- Sexually Transmitted Infections, including HIV
- Sexual Safety, Consent, and the Law
- Sexual Identity & Gender
- Sex in the Media
- Communication and Decision-Making
A pre/post-assessment will be administered at the beginning and end of the course. The assessment covers sexual health knowledge that will be covered during the course as well as questions about student comfort and confidence in communicating about sexual health topics with peers, partners, and trusted adults. You can examine instructional materials, including assessments, at the school office. If you have questions, please see your child’s teacher or principal. State law allows you to remove your student from any portion of a comprehensive sexual health education course.
If you do not want your student to participate in this sexual health course, please give a note to your student’s Physical Education teacher by Friday, April 1, 2022. The goal of a comprehensive sexual health education program is to help students learn the facts and to make good decisions now, and later in life.

Mask Mandate Information
The mandate for our schools to have students and staff wear masks at a school will end at 11:59 pm today, Friday, March 11th.
Monday, March 14th will be the first school day this year that wearing a mask at school will be optional for students and staff.
The mask mandate was something that has been required for schools.
While the CDPH still strongly recommends the wearing of masks inside, after March 11th, it will no longer be required.
As this will now be a personal choice for each individual, we ask that people go out of their way to be respectful of that choice.
If you choose to wear a mask, please respect the choice of those who don't.
If you choose not to wear a mask, please respect the choice of those who do.
Everybody's situation is different, and let's give everyone the respect we would all like to receive.
