Physical Wellness

Throughout the course of Health, there will be sensitive topics within the five units that may cause different emotional reactions from individual students. We will teach your student, as well as support your student on these topics that are mandated by the State of Illinois and School District 120 board policy.  We encourage you to have conversations with your student in regards to the topics listed below. If you feel there is a specific topic that will cause an emotional reaction, please communicate those concerns with the classroom teacher so we may support your student.  We will do our best to deliver the curriculum while being sensitive to your student’s emotional needs.
