Safeguarding Children: Building Resiliency

CASTLE ROCK - Next month the Douglas County School District will be teaming up with local law enforcement and other community partners to provide a series of regional forums on the safety of our students. In addition to providing parents with information about the physical safety measures we’ve taken, during Safeguarding Children: Building Resiliency we’ll be discussing the importance of psychological safety and what you can do to support your student’s wellbeing.

PARKER: April 9 – Chaparral High School
HIGHLANDS RANCH: April 16 – ThunderRidge High School
CASTLE ROCK: April 23 – Castle View High School

All three forums will be held from 6-9 p.m.

In conjunction with the forums, there will also be a resource fair on April 23. Parents will be able to meet experts from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Douglas Arapahoe Mental Health, Children’s Hospital, and many more community organizations.
