RE: Grade 7-8 Health Expo
We have recently been made aware by our community partners (RCMP, Mental Health, Alberta Health
Services) of local trends which are posing increasing risks to the students in our community.
In order to proactively educate and support our students, families and community. Queen Elizabeth
School has joined with our WRPS District Partners to develop a morning of presentations in the form of a Health Expo on Tuesday, November 23,2021.
The expo will run in the morning beginning at 9:00 until noon. Students will rotate through the
presentations about Vaping and drug use, consent, social media safety, and, healthy relationships led by WRPS staff with their homeroom cohort.
As the Expo sessions are directly linked to outcomes in the Alberta Health and English Language Arts
curriculum, it is expected that all students attend the sessions, however as per WRPS Administrative
Procedure 206: Human Sexuality Education and the Alberta Human Rights Act Section 11.1(2), if you
wish your child to be exempt from the the discussion about consent,please fill out the form below and
return to school no later than Monday. November 22. 2021.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mrs. Stengel, our Family School Liaison, at the
