Online Safety

Education is the Best Defense

It is our job to arm students with knowledge to recognize signs of danger. That’s why it’s important to teach them when to dial 911, why to avoid strangers and how to deal with a fire drill. Now, the internet is the digital community where your child lives 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and it is our job as educators to prepare them with online safety skills. Cyber-bullying, privacy, and the ethical use of digital resources are just a few of the topics included in our curriculum.
