On December 9th, ACHS students will take the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS) during their enrichment class. It is an important survey about student health and behavior. The survey will ask students about health topics including: exercise, diet, alcohol, tobacco, drug use, mental health, suicide, bullying, healthcare, and sexual behaviors. The survey also asks students about school-life, school safety, trusted adult relationships, and other things known to be connected with healthy choices
The survey is optional and anonymous. The survey process will protect your student’s privacy. No information is collected on the survey that can identify a student. Only your child will know how he or she answers the questions. Students do not get school credit for taking the survey, and there is no penalty for not taking the survey. Students who take the survey may choose not to answer any question. Please read the parent letter attached for more information or contact Kianna Crowe at 303-340-1600 if you have any questions or concerns.
