Keeping Your Student Safe

  • Computers

     

    The digital world we live in is truly amazing.  Information is at our fingertips.  However, there are also many aspects of online life we need to be wary of.  At school, we do our best to teach your young person about cybersafety.  However, school lessons aren't enough and if you think that a teen is too old or Internet savy to not make mistakes online, please think again.  Your child spends on average 9 hours a day in front of a screen of some sort...tv, computer, tablet, or phone.  Below you will find some great resources to help you guide your teen through the sometimes dangerous digital world.
