The week of February 4 - 8, 2013 has been designated as Internet Safety Week in our division.  Schools will schedule various activities addressing Internet Safety topics such as cyberbullying, Internet predators, identity theft, netiquette for social networking, texting and others.  Please take time to emphasize the importance of online safety not only during Internet Safety week, but throughout the school year.  Our students use of the Internet and its tools is increasing.  It is our responsibility to assist in making sure they are making appropriate, safe decisions on how they use these tools.  Thanks to everyone for their cooperation in helping making our students safe online.
