INTERNET SAFETY MESSAGE

Jane Rauen - Supervisor of Media Services

Some ideas for Internet safety at home:

  1. Help your children balance their computer time with other activities.

  2. Locate the computer in a public area of your home so it is easy to supervise.

  3. Remind your children to keep personal information private, and to check with you before sharing information online.

  4. Check the resources below if you want to use a filter or monitor your children as they use the Internet.

  5. Expand family "stranger danger" rules to include unknown persons on the web who many not be who they seem to be.

  6. Explore information on the web with your children.

Elementary media specialists will teach CyberSmart! lessons as reminders to protect individual and family privacy. We encourage you to keep talking with your children on their Internet use.
