Health and Safety
Our district is proactive in providing parents with information that benefits the health and safety of students and demonstrates our commitment to the wellbeing of all faculty, staff, students and visitors.
In today's digital age, it can be a challenge for parents to keep their kids safe on the internet and to make them understand some of the dangers that might exist by using it. Below are just a couple of resources that may help you understand some of the risks, and help you speak to your kids about them.
NetSmartz Workshop is an interactive, educational program of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC) that provides age-appropriate resources to help teach children how to be safer on- and offline. The program is designed for children ages 5-17, parents and guardians, educators, and law enforcement. With resources such as videos, games, activity cards, and presentations, NetSmartz entertains while it educates.
- Educate children on how to recognize potential Internet risks
- Engage children and adults in a two-way conversation about on- and offline risks
- Empower children to help prevent themselves from being exploited and to report victimization to a trusted adult
While the Internet can be a valuable educational tool, it exposes children to dangers and security risks. Fortunately, there is so much that parents can do to help their children stay safe when accessing the web. This resource is developed for parents to understand these risks and what steps to take in order to minimize them.
