Odle Middle School students will soon participate in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey. During the month of October, the survey will be given to all Washington students in Grades 6, 8, 10 and 12. More than 200,000 students are expected to take the survey across the state.

Odle will survey 6th and 8th grade students on Thursday October 26, 2023.

The Healthy Youth Survey (HYS) is a collaborative effort of several organizations including the Health Care Authority – Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery (DBHR), the Department of Health (DOH), and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). The survey measures health risk behaviors that contribute to illness, death and social challenges among young people in Washington state. The survey may include questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, sexual behaviors, abuse, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities, and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

Please refer to the attached HYS 2023 Parent and Student Information Letter with additional information.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and student answers are anonymous. Families who do not want their student to participate in the survey may request this by contacting the Odle Middle School Assistant Principal Secretary, Ms. Molly Tokuda at:  [email protected]. Students can also tell their teacher that they do not want to take the survey. Questions about the purpose of the survey or survey procedures can be made by phone (1-877-HYS-7111) or email [email protected].
