Safety in the Age of Technology
The Internet can be a wonderful resource for students but that access can also pose hazards. That's why it's important to be aware of what your children see and hear on the Internet, who they meet, and what they share about themselves online. Just like any safety issue, it's wise to talk with your children about your concerns, take advantage of resources to protect them, and keep a close eye on their activities. Below are sites that offer information and resources to help in this on-going effort to stay aware and safe.
