A.V. Baucom Elementary School
Three Simple Guidelines
- Do NOT talk to strangers online and NEVER agree to meet anyone online in person.
- Tell a parent or adult if a stranger contacts you via email, chatroom, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, ect.
- Ask your parents permission before you enter contests, join clubs, or share your personal information for any reason! Personal information includes your name, address, age, phone number, birthday, email address, where you go to school, and other facts about you.
No Talking to Strangers
Your mom and dad has probably warned you not to talk to strangers. This same rule goes for the online world. Never respond to a stranger online or talk to them on the phone, and do not email them photos of yourself.
People on the internet lie to trick kids. Someone might tell you they are a kid just like you when really they are an adult. In the past, kids ended up in dangerous situations because they agreed to meet up with online strangers in person.
Tell an adult immediately if a stranger contacts you in a chat room, over email, or text message.
Keep Your Privacy
Check with a parent or grown-up before signing in, logging in, or creating a personal profile on any website. This information can be used for reasons you wouldn't want, like sending you junk email.
If you have email, ask mom or dad before you reply to any email that asks for your personal information.
Another way to keep your privacy safe online is to choose a screen name or email account that does not include your real name.
Example: Instead of using "John_Smith" for an email or user name, try "SkaterBoy_1"
Remember, No Talking to Strangers...
And Keep Your Privacy!
