Important OWL Program Information
OWL programs are one of our communities most beloved programs for children and youth because of the comprehensive and high quality curriculum.
Here are some important details:
Class sizes are limited: To build a quality community of learners, we need to limit of class sizes for each program. If a class runs out of space your child will be placed on a waiting list. Please know that families that are members of UUFR are prioritized for space in a class.
Caregiver Orientations are Required for Participation: The OWL program affirms caregivers as their children’s primary sexuality educators. Therefore we require all caregivers to attend the OWL orientation to ensure they understand the content and know how to support the learning process at home.
Attendance is Required: To provide a safe, supportive learning environment, it is important that all participants make a commitment to attend all the dates of the program barring sickness or family emergencies.
We ask that that for elementary OWL classes families agree to no more than one planned absence and for 8th & 9th grade OWL classes families agree to no more than 4 planned absences (the opening retreat is required).
10-12th Grade OWL will be offered again in the Fall of 2024!
