"Play It Safe" Parent Preview

Date: Tuesday - August 28, 2018

Elementary schools in HEB ISD will once again participate in the Play It Safe!® program, by the Women's Center of Tarrant County, during the fall semester.

Interested parents wanting to know more are invited to the Play It Safe!® district-wide parent preview on Tuesday, August 28th at 6:30 p.m. at the Pat May Center; 1849 B Central Drive, Bedford, TX 76022.

If you can't attend the Parent Preview event, you can also preview parts of the program on the Play It Safe! website.

Play It Safe!® is a personal safety curriculum provided as a community service by the Women's Center of Tarrant County. Variations of the curriculum have been presented in Tarrant County and surrounding counties since the early 1980's. In more than 20 area school districts, more than 91,000 school age children from elementary to high school students benefit from this prevention program.

The elementary program is designed for pre-K to sixth grade students. Presentations are classroom based so that children are in a familiar environment and feel comfortable to interact with the trainer. Trainers are specially equipped Women's Center staff members. Each presentation lasts approximately one hour. It is suggested that children experience the program each year to reinforce concepts and ideas in a consistent manner.

The elementary curriculum is extremely age-appropriate with children being taught new information as they mature. Each grade level is introduced to the "safety rule," which is to say no, get away, if you can, and always tell a trusted adult. The "safety rule" is then applied to many situations that children may encounter on a daily basis, such as bullies on the playground, exploitation by friends, or peer pressure. The "safety rule" encourages assertive responses, whether it is used with strangers or someone the child knows.
