Erin’s Law and Zones of Regulation:
Hello Yujin Gakuen families;
Erin’s Law requires that elementary schools share information with students during the year to ensure our students are aware of safe and unsafe touch, and the safe people who they can talk with in their community. Our classroom teachers will be teaching and reviewing safe choices with our students over the next few weeks leading up to the winter break.
Below are web addresses for age-appropriate, Protect Yourself videos that you are welcome to review with your child at home. Included below is a snapshot of the main ideas presented in the videos, which could be displayed in a prominent place in your home.
Also, there is a link to “Hot Chocolate Talks”, which are age-specific guidelines for talking with kids about preventing sexual abuse.

If you would like to be included in our YG directory this year, please use this Google Link to share your contact information and we will organize these into a PDF that will be emailed to our YG
The deadline for joining the YG directory is December 3rd.

Health Screening- December 10th, 2021
Our vision screening this year will be Friday, December 10th during the school day for grades K-3. This vision screening will be done by a “Spot Test” with the Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation volunteers and does NOT take the place of a thorough eye examination by an eye health specialist, as serious or eye health problems can be missed. If the results of the vision screening indicate your student needs a thorough eye exam, you will be notified of results after we receive them, generally 2-4 weeks after the screening date. The volunteers are required to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
Our dental screening this year also will be Friday, December 10th during the school day, for grades K-5. This is an oral health screening, a quick look, and DOES NOT take the place of a complete examination by a dentist. Serious oral health problems may be missed in a brief visual screening. The screening is performed by the Community Health Centers of Lane County, Dental Prevention. Additionally, if an authorization for Dental Hygiene Services was returned, the Dental Prevention Program may offer a fluoride varnish treatment during the screening. There is a possibility that dental insurance would be billed, as mentioned on their consent form.
