Let's Get Growing!

kids in a circle looking down at the webpageLet's Get Growing! is an interactive parent/child sexuality education program. This one-day class offers parents and children ages 9 to 12 the opportunity to learn together about puberty, hygiene, reproduction, and social development.

The goals of this program are:

  • To inform young people of adolescent age of normal biological and psychological changes they will experience as they continue to grow toward adulthood.
  • To encourage family dialogue especially in the areas of relationships and sexuality.
  • To explore facts and feeling related to sexuality in order to provide children with the knowledge and skills needed to make healthy decisions in the future.

Facilitator & Parent Roles

The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment offers the Let's Get Growing! classes to schools and various community organizations. A “family-centered” approach is utilized. Instructors present factual information and facilitate discussion, and parents and teens share their views with one another.

The primary objective of the facilitators is to convey factual information while encouraging communication within the family. The facilitators are health educators, nurses, and counselors, comfortable discussing the subject matter and experienced at creating a relaxed, fun atmosphere for families.

Parents need to be the primary sex educators of their children. The National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy reports that 87% of teens say it would be easier for them to postpone sexual activity and avoid teen pregnancy if they were able to have more open, honest conversations with their parents. However, 90% of parents who believe they should talk to their kids about sex say they don’t know what to say, how to say it, or when to start. Hopefully, participation in this program will help families begin a healthy conversation about sexuality that can continue throughout adolescence.

Program Details

Let's Get Growing! classes are held once a year at the Johnson County Health Services Building, 11875 S. Sunset Dr, Olathe, KS 66061. The class is from 9:00 a.m.- noon on a Saturday and includes lunch. Parents or caregivers are required to accompany children. Typically, the boys’ families and girls’ families are taught in separate rooms. A snack will be provided at the break.

Classes can also be sponsored by a school, church, or community organization. Sponsors help to promote the class to participants and arrange for the meeting space and audio/visual equipment.

Rabies Exposures and Animal Bites

Rabies Exposure Forms and Documents:

  • Rabies Exposure - Detailed Information Form
    • Replaces JCHD Animal Bite Report Form. Form to be completed by ACOs/CSOs, veterinarians, JCDHE-Environmental, and /or hospital staff if a rabies exposure has occurred. Provides a more thorough summary of a rabies exposure to make future investigation and follow-up easier.
  • Compendium of Animal Rabies Prevention & Control, 2016
    • These recommendations serve as a basis for animal rabies prevention and control programs throughout the United States and facilitate standardization of procedures among jurisdictions, thereby contributing to an effective national rabies control program.
  • KDHE Rabies Prevention and Control Guidelines
  • Rabies Facts & Prevention
    • Informational brochure from JCDHE for persons that may have been exposed to rabies, persons that submit a specimen for rabies testing, and/or persons that have questions about rabies exposures.

Rabies Exposures

The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE) works in conjunction with local animal control officers (ACOs) and community service officers (CSOs) in Johnson County to limit the potential for human rabies exposures. The cooperation of many departments and agencies is necessary to provide this critical component of public health. 

Local ACOs and CSOs begin with an initial investigation of a potential rabies exposure, most often an animal bite, and determines the best course of action for each case. Officers will monitor animals that have bitten a person, as well as owned animals that may have been bitten. These officers are very important to the successful management of rabies exposure cases. If you are concerned about an animal, contact the officer in the area where the incident or potential exposure occurred. Click here for a list of Johnson County Animal Control offices.

The JCDHE Environmental Division oversees the submission of animal specimens for rabies testing at the Kansas State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. They work with ACOs, CSOs, veterinarians, and the general public to organize the shipment and documentation of submitted specimens. The Environmental Division will only accept rabies specimens for cases originating within Johnson County. Please contact the JCDHE Environmental Division at 913-715-6900 before bringing a specimen to their office.

The JCDHE Disease Containment Division works with local animal control and community service officers and the Environmental Division to track cases that are determined to be rabies exposures. They work with ACOs and CSOs to determine the nature of an exposure then plan the management of both the animal and the victim. The Disease Containment Division also works with medical staff to determine which types of treatments the victim may need. Positive rabies cases are then reported to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for tracking purposes.

Submitting a Specimen for Rabies Testing

Please contact the JCDHE Environmental Division at 913-715-6900 before bringing a specimen to their office. To determine if a specimen should be tested for rabies, please contact your local Animal Control office using the above link. If a specimen is to be tested, local ACOs, CSOs, or your veterinarian can prepare the specimen for shipping. We recommend that you rely on these professionals to prepare the specimen to protect you from potential rabies exposure. 

The specimens are shipped to the Kansas State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (in Manhattan, KS) Monday through Friday, but increased shipping costs apply to Friday shipments because of the need for Saturday delivery. Payment of the shipping fee will be required at the time the specimen is submitted to the JCDHE Environmental Division.

Rabies Testing Fees

Specimen shipping Monday-Thursday: $90.00
Specemen shipping on Friday: $105.00 (requires a Saturday delivery fee)

Rabies Testing Results

The JCDHE Disease Containment Division will inform the victim of the results and submit a copy of the results to the Animal Control Officer, Community Service Officer, and/or veterinarian who was involved in the case.
