Parents, on July 1, 2018 the state passed Senate Bill 65 which requires parent consent to curriculum addressing human sexuality.  We have listed this information for you on Parent Access in Skyward.  Please log in to your Skyward account (contact the school if you have not set up an account), go to Parent Access and follow the link on the home page of Parent Access indicating that there is a new form that needs to be completed.  The form is available through the "Online Forms" tab on the left side of the Parent Access screen.  If you have more than one child, a form must be completed and submitted for each child.  Please do not hesitate to contact me personally at Boston or through email if you have any questions regarding Senate Bill 65.
