Questions and Answers

  • How do students keep themselves safe on the Internet?

    Posted by:
    Students can ensure their safety on the Internet by not posting personal information about themselves or other people. This includes, but is not limited to, addresses, phone numbers, name of the city where you live, name of the school you attend, or any other personal information or numbers that are associated with you. Students should never agree to meet with someone they have met online. They should talk to a staff member or trusted adult about anything they may encounter that is inappropriate or makes them feel uncomfortable.

  • What keeps students from getting to inappropriate Websites?

    Posted by:
    District filtering software is installed on our network to best block inappropriate websites. As new websites are created that are deemed inappropriate they are blocked for student access. As part of good citizenship, students learn to avoid or leave inappropriate sites and use the Web in appropriate ways.
