Are You a Digital Citizen? 

Are you using the Internet and Apps safely and responsibly?  Use the following checklist to be sure you are:

  • check  I do not do anything that hurts others or is illegal.
  • check  I do not give out any personal information such as phone number, email, address without my parents’ permission.
  • check  I never agree to get together with someone I “meet” online without first checking with my parents.
  • check  I don't respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable. Instead, I tell my parent or teacher.
  • check  I always talk with my parents before posting pictures of myself or my family online to be sure it is appropriate.
  • check  I only share my passwords with my parents and NO ONE else. 
  • check  I always check with my parents before downloading or installing anything on your computer or mobile device so we protect our privacy.
  • check  I never open an email or message from a stranger as it may contain a virus that could harm your computer or mobile
