CYBER SAFETY RESOURCES
The Internet is a fabulous resource for education, entertainment, and more. However, the Internet is not regulated or controlled by any one entity. Therefore, parents and schools have a responsibility to educate children about its safe and appropriate use.
Below are resources that can assist in informing students, teachers, and parent about effective use of the internet at school and home.

As we enter the holiday break, we would like to remind parents and students of the following Chromebook guidelines. The Chromebook is provided to students for educational purposes only. Only the student assigned to the Chromebook should utilize the device. Playing games, listening to music, and watching movies are considered inappropriate uses of the school device. When using the Chromebook, be sure to keep it in the case, if one was provided. Hold the Chromebook with two hands, and always place it on an even surface to prevent it from falling. Do not eat or drink around the Chromebook, and finally, do not overcharge the device. Any damage incurred to the Chromebook will be the responsibility of the parent or the legal guardian. Thank you.Dr. FitzhughSuperintendent of Schools* * *In addition, students will only be able to access ReadingPlus, iReady, iRead and Office 365 on their district issued devices from Dec. 24th - January 1st. They will regain full access to their devices on Sunday, January 2nd.
