Dear Mark Twain Elementary parents/Guardians,

This year the Silver Falls School District curriculum will include implementation of SB 856, more commonly known as Erin’s Law.  This is a state-mandated, age-appropriate sexual abuse awareness and prevention education program for students Pre-K through 12th grade.

It is estimated that one in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused by the time they are eighteen.  This program is aimed at educating and empowering students with the knowledge and skills they need to reduce their vulnerability.

For further information regarding Erin’s Law please visit:


If you have any questions about the content of the program or if you wish to inquire about opting out, please feel free to contact our Principal Greg Kaatzt 503-873-6341,
