FRMS 6th and 8th grade students will participate in the Student Health Survey (SHS), a survey sponsored by the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division and the Oregon Department of Education. The survey will gather information about health risk behaviors of students in grades 6, 8 and 11.
Sixth Grade students will take the survey on 11/7/22 and 8th Grade Students will take the survey on 11/8/22. Both grades will take it during their Language Arts class.
The survey will include questions about:
- Student health and safety
- Student mental and behavioral health
- School climate and culture
Survey procedures have been designed to protect your child’s privacy and allow for anonymous participation. If your child is not comfortable answering a question, he or she can leave it blank. While we encourage all students to participate, the decision to participate is voluntary. You may opt to send a refusal for your child’s participation.
Below is the link to the Opt Out form if you do not want your child to participate in this survey. Please return the completed form to the school office by Thursday, November 3rd. Your child or you can also pick up an Opt Out form from the office if you don’t have access to a printer.
We have also included a link to a Student Health Survey Fact Sheet if you want more information.
You can review the survey document at the school office before the survey date. The survey is also available online:
