The week begins with  presentations by Jason Parkinson of Netzsmart.  Rules presented for the younger students were: 1. Do not give our you personal information, 2. If you feel something online is confusing or makes you uncomfortable, tell a trusted adult, 3.  Never meet someone face to face offline that you met online. 4. Don't post rude or mean statements or photos.  

For the 5th and 6th grade students he talked about being a good virtual citizen when posting and sharing, no cyber bullying.  Beware of online predators who try to build a relationship and want to meet you online.  Set your social media on privacy mode.  You cannot get back and erase what you hae posted.  If you see someing that looks wrong report it to a trusted adult.  

Employers often check you on the internet when making hiring decisions.  You must be 13 to have a Facebook account.  Get your parents involved in what you are posting on social media.
