Internet and Social Media Safety Links:
As the popularity and prevalence of technology rises, so does our need to closely supervise children’s usage. While it can be a powerful tool, the internet can also pose many dangers. At school, we continuously reinforce the importance of not sharing personal information, only navigating adult approved websites, and thinking before sending a message.
