Internet Safety - Our technology teachers work closely to educate students on Internet Safety and Cyberbullying. They use youTube videos as well as BrainPop and BrainPop Jr. to reinforce the lessons. At school we have strong filters to keep students as safe as possible. We have placed some videos on our websites to allow student to view them again safely. We strongly suggest parental supervision whenever your child is using the internet.
