Royal Oak Schools: A Community of Excellence
Week of 1.3.16 & 1.10.16
Happy New Year!
OKAY2SAY - Please Join us!
The Michigan Attorney General’s office will conduct a presentation on student safety featuring the Michigan Cyber Safety Initiative (CSI) and the student safety hotline, OK2SAY.
The one-hour seminar for adults is being offered at the Northwood Elementary School Cafeteria at 6:30 PM on January 7. Entry will be at the North Entrance #1. Recommended for 4th and 5th grade parents but all are invited!
The community seminar provides practical tools including Internet safety tips and how to: 1) access the Michigan Sex Offender Registry; 2) understand the impact of digital footprints; 3) appreciate the risk of sharing photos with embedded location information; 4) recognize the potential dangers and legal ramification of sexting; and 5) identify cyberbullying warning signs and develop a plan of action. This presentation will also cover what the students see in their respective presentations, as well as what OK2SAY is, and how it works.
Handouts used during our presentations, and additional information, can be accessed at the Attorney General's website, www.mi.gov/csi. More information on OK2SAY, as well as resources, is available at www.mi.gov/ok2say.
