PARENT GUIDANCE FOR Online SAFETY
Parents should be clearly aware of the school’s policy of access to social networking sites. Where a disclosure of bullying is made, schools now have the duty to investigate and protect, even where the bullying originates outside the school. Parents must also understand that they are responsible for access to technology outside of school, if issues arise parents must review their home security and access to technology.
