  • Internet Safety and Our Kids

    The Internet has changed the way that children interact with the world. They have access to in-depth knowledge, tools to express their creativity and people from all over the world. Yet along with offering a fascinating, new way to connect with the world, the Internet also offers new risks.

    We encourage parents to have intentional conversations with their children about what they encounter online. These discussions could include:

    • Reminding children to never contact strangers online, on any platform;

    • Encourage children to share any worries or concerns with you;

    • Ensure children understand the importance of not giving personal information to anyone they do not know;

    • Tell children no one has the right to make them do anything they do not want to do;

    • Set privacy systems on devices with your child as a way to have a conversation about safety.

    It is also important for parents to know what children can access online. We have the following suggestions for families:

    • Set privacy settings for all social media and gaming applications;

    • Keep video games and YouTube watching in shared family spaces;

    • Set up video game restrictions to friends only;

    • Set up “restricted” mode on YouTube for your child’s account so inappropriate content is not available to them or stream YouTube content through a family-friendly site such as watchkin.com.

    • Look for digital citizenship safety tips – you can find an example at SafeKids.com

    • Local resources, such as Policy Code: 3226/4205 Internet Safety, can be found online at caldwellschools.com in the Caldwell County Board of Education policies.

    If you have any questions or need support with respect to discussing online safety with your child,  please contact your child’s school office.

    Open Enrollment for Student Transfers has now ended and all schools are officially closed to transfers.
    Any parents requesting school transfer must pick up a form at either the Freedman Center or the Education Center, and that completed application will only be approved if there is a verifiable hardship. Each application must be accompanied by a letter detailing that hardship.  Completed forms should be remitted directly to Student Services, and not returned to the schools.
