Smart and Safe "Surfing"

Internet Guidelines for Ms. Godwin's 4th Grade

In our class, we will be using technology like the Internet to enhance our learning experiences. Although there are many great materials that we will find online, our class goal will be to surf the internet safely. This flyer should be saved, reviewed, and shared with your parents.


Follow Our Class' SURF Guidelines

Share smartly by not giving out personal information, such as your full name, phone number, or address online.

Understand that using the Internet is a privilege. Visit websites pre-approved by your teacher or other adult in charge.

Read carefully and do not believe everything that you find online. Ask an adult if unsure.

Friends in the classroom are friends online. Never post anything that could upset someone!
