The Wyoming Department of Education is committed to student safety and health. The programs we sponsor and support are grounded in education and knowledge, because the more students know about potentially harmful subjects, the better they can prepare to face them. Our goal is to keep parents and students informed. If you have questions or would like to learn more about our Health and Safety programs, please contact Bruce Hayes by way of the information listed above.
