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
Remember: avoid sarcasm. Being funny and being rude are not the same thing. Be mindful of your tone when making comments.
No Inappropriate Material/Comments
Remember: 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
Remember: 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
Remember: 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
Remember: 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
Remember: copy/paste is cheating. If you're using someone else's work, make sure you give credit to your source.
