I have 4 boys who I'm constantly trying to minimize their exposure to graphic/sexual material whether it be from movies, TV, internet, friends, etc.  I don't need their school to be adding to this fight.  Please consider an advanced notification and opt out option so we can help determine the individual rate of exposure to this material.  

It shocks me that some students who are told to read Beloved would not have been able to see this movie inthe theater due to age and graphic/sexual material yet FCPS assigns it!
