For Families

“Prior to H.E.R.O. my daughter was anxious and afraid to go to school. Now she is confident and no longer afraid. H.E.R.O. changed her life!

The family connection is a vitally important component of the H.E.R.O. Program. Each lesson includes a journaling activity designed to capture feelings and inform the family of their child’s response to the program. There are also extension activities that are designed to increase safe-thinking skills beyond the classroom.

We encourage families to learn alongside students by downloading the H.E.R.O. Parent Companion Guide. This guide will help you understand the components of the H.E.R.O. Program so your whole family can implement effective safety strategies in the event of an emergency. To further this goal, we have prepared a number of accompanying family safety resources you can download below.
