Parents, its a good idea to monitor your children while they are online.  When possible if they are online, have them in a common area in the house while they are online for more visibility and ease of monitoring.

Digital Citizenship Week – October 14-18

 

The week of October 14-18 is Digital Citizenship Week. We know that student learning is always expanded when schools and families work together. We encourage families to make digital citizenship discussions a priority during #DigCitWeek 2019. This might be a great week, for instance, to commit to device-free dinners. For resources and information on this annual event, please check out a recent post on the District’s Digital Citizenship website: Digital Citizenship 2019 – So Many Possibilities.
