Our goal is to ensure our students practice online safety at all times. We recommend that you take a few minutes to discuss online safety with your child and maintain frequent conversations with them about their online activities and behavior.
Online Etiquette Tips
Always Be Respectful
Avoid sarcasm. Being funny and being rude are not the same thing. Be mindful of your tone when making comments.
No Inappropriate Material/Comments
Nothing is completely private online. If it's not appropriate for the classroom, it's not appropriate online. Follow the handbook guidelines.
Support Each Other
Kindness counts. If a classmate has an incorrect answer or typo, don't ridicule them. Practice kindness and be courteous.
Be Mindful of Your Environment
Think before you send. Be polite and avoid negativity. Don't complain on discussion forums. Ask your teacher for help if you need it.
Be Safe Online
Pay attention to suspicious behavior. Never give out personal information to strangers online. When in doubt, ask an adult. Your teacher will post assignments in a safe environment.
Copy and paste is cheating. If you're referencing someone else's work, make sure you give credit to your source.
