Be Safe Online

I just posted a page on Cyber Safety over on the technology part of the district web site. The district sent out a letter to parents in December warning them that some students are posting personal information on sites like Xanga and Myspace. Students (and adults) need to tread lightly when posting this kind of stuff online, because they could become victims of various forms of cyber crime.

We don’t want to keep students from using these technologies to interact with one another. It is important, thought, to teach them how to behave safely online. The posting includes several links to web resources to help parents help their children stay safe online, including some really kid-friendly stuff.
