    During instruction at the school sites boys and girls will be viewing the DVDs separately.  
    A student will be excused from Family Life and Sexual Health instruction if such instruction conflicts with the religious training or beliefs of a parent or guardian (CEC 51240).  If you wish to excuse your student from participating a signed waiver must be submitted to your student's teacher.  Students will view films unless the teacher receives the signed waiver.  Parent notification coming soon.
