K - 4th grade: Safer, Smarter Kids!
In accordance with the Alaska Safe Children's Act, Salcha students grades K-4 are learning tools they can use to keep themselves safe and speak up for themselves in unsafe situations. The Safer, Smarter Kids lessons use developmentally appropriate information to teach children the language and skills they need, such as the power to recognize an unsafe situation and to say "no," and knowing who they can trust to go to for help.
