Internet safety

Please help us out by making sure to monitor your students internet usage. We have had a few cases where students are using an apps like discord (http://discord.com/) to connect with students and others outside of Harmony. We strive to ensure the safety of our students. Please make sure that when using the school computers and emails, they are not reaching out to people outside of Harmony or using it inappropriately. Thank you so much for your help with this.
