Cyber Safety

While the Internet is a great tool for learning and connecting, online safety and cyberbullying are major issues today.

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

Social media and "anonymous" apps appear to give users the freedom to send/post what they want without consequences. However, law enforcement can track the senders of cyberbullying and harassing messages that were supposedly "anonymous."

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