Internet Safety

Teaching students about internet safety has become a very relevant issue this school year. Students now have more access to the internet than ever before. Earlier this school year Debbie Hammer shared a great article during our Project Team meeting about how different schools are teaching internet safety. There are a lot of great resources and lesson ideas shared from educators in this article. If you are looking for some new ideas click on the article link below.

Nurse Rachel's Notes


SPS has many community partners such as Care to Learn, Kid's First, Ozark's Food Harvest, Help Give Hope, Jordan Valley, Tooth Truck, Give a Kid a Smile Day, Trudi's Kids and many others that work together to ensure that the health, hunger and hygiene needs of our students are met. If you have concerns in any of these areas, please contact Mr. Greiner or myself for us to make the appropriate referral. Thanks for always keeping our children's needs a top priority!! And if in doubt, just ask...we can always try.
