  • Body Safety Lessons

    On May 8th, 2018, Governor Deal signed SB 401 into law requiring all Georgia public schools to deliver age-appropriate personal body safety lessons to K-9th graders. 

    Shannon Bond from SAFE (Safety Awareness for Everyone) has conducted personal safety instruction with our school in the past. We are fortunate to have Ms.Bond come to our school this year and present this excellent program.

    Please see the information below, obtained from the Harbor House website: (

    “Safety Awareness for Everyone (SAFE) is an abuse prevention program taught through public school systems in Northwest Georgia. The curriculum focuses on valuable life skills such as assertiveness and self-protection. The curriculum takes into consideration the developmental stages of the children taught with 3 programs geared toward Kindergarten through 4th grade age groups.”

     This program helps teach children how to refuse unsafe situations. The lessons encourage teaching students to recognize unsafe situations and report the situations to adults immediately. If you have any questions, please visit the above website for more questions or call Mrs. Shell at 706-236-1865.
