Using Technology Safely

The Internet is proving to be an un-measurable resource for educating today’s students.  While providing so many new educational opportunities, unfortunately this resource has become an area that our students are not always prepared for. 

            It is our goal to join with you, parents and guardians, to help educate and monitor this generation of technology users to help keep them safe.  This information should serve as a starting point to help protect our children.

It is important that you read and discuss this information with your student.  You and your student will be required to sign, date and return our Acceptable Technology Use Policy.
