Mandatory Parent Meeting
Topic: Your Child’s Online Safety
Tuesday, February 9th @ 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary
(Please enter through the atrium doors by the Preschool Entrance or the Upper School Entrance)
On this very important evening, we will be discussing what type of values our children are being exposed to through technology, how much technology is too much, consequences of overexposure, and the ever-present danger of our children encountering explicit material and pornography online. (According to the internet protection service GuardChild, “70% of children 7 to 18 years old have accidentally encountered online pornography, often through a web search while doing homework”.) We will also be sharing some great tips and products that you can use to make your home and electronic devices as safe as possible for your children.
Please make plans to attend. After the assembly, parents will visit their child’s classroom. Due to the nature of the material to be discussed, students will not be permitted to attend.
ATTENTION BASKETBALL PARENTS
We understand that there is a basketball game scheduled on February 9th as well. We ask that one parent plan to attend the meeting, as we believe the information you will receive is very important for you and your family.
