  • September: Teen Lures Prevention

    Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

    We all share a common goal for our children to be safe and protected from all things harmful.  Related to that goal, Senate Bill 401 includes annual age-appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention in kindergarten through grade 9. Teen Lures Prevention program is a research-based program that Gwinnett County Public Schools uses to teach the importance of healthy relationships and its connection to personal safety by way of class discussions, student handouts, video clips and corresponding activities.  Teen Lures Prevention enables students to take an active and necessary role in making healthy choices and protecting themselves from unhealthy relationships. A committee of professional school counselors reviewed the program and selected components that were developmentally appropriate for middle school.

    During the months of September, our school counselors will offer the Teen Lures Prevention lessons to all students in grades 6-8. You can learn more about the program at Please be aware that more information is provided on the website than is actually used in Gwinnett County. Below is a list of lures that are discussed at each grade level. Each grade reviews what was learned in the previous grade(s) and then learns additional lures.  


    Game Lure


    Name Lure

    Emergency Lure


    Authority Lure

    Assistance Lure

    Ego/Fame Lure



    Affection Lure

    Trafficking Lure

    Pet Lure


    If you prefer that your child not participate in the teen lures prevention lessons, please write and sign a note indicating your preferences and send it to your child’s teacher or school counselor. As always, counselors are available to discuss any concerns you might have.  Unless written documentation is received, your child will participate in the teen lures prevention and safety lessons.

    In an effort to assist our parents in using MyPaymentsPlus, GCPS has created two videos that will walk you through setting up a MyPaymentsPlus account as well as review any documents signed online through MyPaymentsPlus. Feel free to use these videos to sign up for an account before our open house.
    MyPaymentsPlus went live for the new school year on Saturday, July 20th so you can start paying for contributions/activities and signing any orientation documents at any time.
