    Dear Parents and Guardians,


    Early adolescence is an exciting but sometimes confusing and challenging time for both teens and the adults in their lives. Our Annual Project Safeguard Conference aims to provide useful information, as well as a starting point for dialogue on some topics that can be difficult or awkward. This year’s conference will be on Friday, May 18th, and we hope you will be able to join us.

    All presentations will be held at the Amherst Middle School. The keynote address begins at 7:55. and registration for adults will begin at 7:30. in the AMS lobby. The program will end at 2:19 p. All students will arrive at school as usual, and attendance will be taken in homeroom. A lunch of pizza, salad, bottled water and a dessert will be available at a cost of $7.00/person. Please complete the enclosed lunch order form and return with payment to your child’s homeroom teacher by April 20. Students will not be able to purchase lunch in the cafeteria that day, but parents and students may bring their own lunches.

                This is our first year using online course registrations. Instructions for registering on line are on the reverse side and course descriptions for each of the sessions are enclosed. Each student and adult participant will have the opportunity to attend four sessions in addition to the opening and closing sessions. Some sessions are just for adults or students, and others are open to all. Please work together to schedule your day. Some sessions have maximum capacities, so the sooner you register on line, the better are your chances of getting your first choices. The online registration will be open on Thursday, April 5, at 3:00. Registrations must be completed on line by Friday, April 20, 2018.

    Please let us know if you need a letter for your employer for your attendance at Project Safeguard. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch with one of the coordinators by e-mail or phone, 673-8944.
