Internet Safety

What's Online

Access to the World

The Internet can be a wonderful resource for everyone. Anyone can use it to research school reports, communicate with others, contact friends, and play interactive games. Anyone with a keyboard can literally access the world. That's why it's important to be aware of what you do on the Internet. And watch who you meet, and what you share about yourself online.

But the ever-present threat of being sexually solicited or bullied while on the Internet is a big problem.
