Hi All! At MHS we are constantly looking at how we can better support our young adults in all areas of their learning, as they grow older during their journey from 14 - 18 year's old. An important part of this journey is learning how to act respectfully and responsibly in relationships. With this in mind we have agreed to participate in a year and a half study through the University of New Hampshire. The purpose of this study is to understand high school dating and relationships and ways to prevent aggression and promote healthy respect in these relationships.

Several students at MHS will be expected to either participate in taking surveys and/or being involved in taking surveys while also being involved in focus group discussions. 

Attached to this email are two letters for you to review. Each reviews the expectations for this study (STUDENTS WILL NOT MISS CLASS TIME TO PARTICIPATE). If you do not want your son or daughter to participate in either part of this study then you need to sign both letters and have your son or daughter return them both to the main office at MHS. If you will allow your son or daughter to participate in one part, but not the other then you need to send one of the letters back signed. If you are fine with your son or daughter participating then you do not have to send either one back.

It is our hope that by participating in this study and the resources that come with it that we will learn many important lessons that will support our efforts at supporting your sons and daughter in the years to come!

My best,

Christian M. Elkington
