This fall some of our students will take the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS). 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 (high school only). The survey also asks students about school-life, school safety, trusted adult relationships, and other things known to be connected with healthy choices.

If your child will participate in the survey, you do not need to sign or return anything. Students will receive the survey in class and are instructed to answer the questions or leave the survey blank. Students who are not completing the survey will do other schoolwork at their desk during the survey time. We encourage you to discuss the topic with your child and share your views on their choice to participate.

If your child will participate in the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey, you do not need to return this
form. If your child will NOT participate in the survey, complete this form and have your child return it to the school in the next two weeks.
