MSNBC Story on Sexting:
Her teen committed suicide over ‘sexting’
Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of CMSD:
As we move forward into the 21st Century, technology continues to become more and more part of our society. Children are now termed “technology natives” and parents and educators as “technology immigrants.” Our children have grown up with a mouse in their hand and hard-wired to quickly adapt to new technologies.
As parents, it is our responsibility to teach children how to wield such powerful tools as the Internet. The Internet is filled with wonderful educational material that children of all ages can benefit. However, it is also filled with inappropriate content, sexual predators, drug promotion, etc. The school see situations on a regular basis where a student has done something inappropriate using a mobile technology or the Internet. As a result, parents must be aware and monitoring their child's interactions on the Internet and mobile devices.
At Canon-McMillan, we want to help you in that mission by providing key information and educational opportunities to the students and parents throughout the school year. The Canon-McMillan Internet Safety link is our way of providing information and resources to you.
Dr. Greg Taranto
