Internet Safety

The Internet is a great tool for learning and connecting. However, online safety and cyberbullying are major issues.

As a parent, you play a critical role in your child's life. Please be informed about Internet safety and monitor your child's online activity.

Social media and anonymous apps seem to give users "freedom" to send or post what they want without consequences. Law enforcement can track the senders of cyberbullying and harassing messages that were supposedly "anonymous."

Together, let's support our students' plans for the future by helping them make good decisions with technology!
