News - Parent Information Night Internet Safety

Published on

Do you hand your child your iPad or smartphone to ‘play with?’
● Do you understand the content risks associated with your child playing otherwise benign games like Clash of Clans or Words with Friends ?
● Do you realize that your very young children (ages 6-10) have probably already been exposed to online inappropriate adult content?

If any of these surprised you, you will want to make plans to hear from nationally recognized speaker, Jesse Weinberger, who will be presenting on a very important topic for parents, “Internet Safety,” during our second Parent Information Night, sponsored by the North Coast Rotary Club, that will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. March 12 in the Performing Arts Center (moved from Commons) at Avon Lake High School, 175 Avon Belden Road. This event is for parents only and it will not be recorded.

She also will be working with our students (grades 5-10) prior to the Parents Information Night presenting Internet safety information. After hearing the presentation, the students will be provided the opportunity to give anonymous feedback via a survey regarding what they will change about their digital life and/or digital behavior after hearing the information, as well as what they think is the biggest issue at school, for example school day interrupted by device related drama, sexting (inappropriate words, photos, videos), cyberbullying, addicted overuse of devices, or none of the above. An optional question for students relates to if they could educate parents, what would they tell them. 

SAVE THE DATE: We hope to see you March 12 for this important presentation.
