Cybersafety

Cybersafety

October is Cybersafety Month and a good time for us to offer resources to our families to help keep you and your family safe.  When we asked our sixth grade students common sites they use they shared: Tik Tok, Snapchat, Instagram, VSCO, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Discord. 

Here are some informative resources to assist you in learning more about the social media our students frequent.

This is also a great time to start talking with your child (if you haven’t already) about cyber safety and cyberbullying.  Here are some great resources to help you through your conversations and to explore further needs you may have.
