Internet Safety

Parents, Guardians, and Community,

State Superintendent Randy Dorn released a statement late last week regarding school safety.  Along with the statement, the staff of the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction put together a two page document on digital safety and cyberbullying that includes simple, common-sense tips—such as keeping communication open and watch for warning signs—as well as websites to visit for more information.

State Superintendent Dorn stated that “what occurred in Marysville was a tragedy” and “making sure it never happens again is a goal we all share.”  He also shared that “understanding the importance of social media in our students’ lives will go a long way to helping those in pain.”

Here is the link to the two-page document: OSPI Tip Sheet

Our hope is that you will use this tip sheet to talk to your children, and you will share it with other parents.  This tip sheet will be on our website under “For Families” à Talking to Children about Social Media, Digital Safety & Cyberbullying”.
