Internet Safety Assembly Held at BIS

This morning, the 5th and 6th grade students attended an assembly called “Is It Worth the Risk?” presented by the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.  The presentation was filled with techniques, safety tips, relevant internet safety issues, and real-life examples geared toward helping students make educated and informed decisions while online. 

The presentation’s main theme was “THINK BEFORE YOU POST!”, which was supported with discussions about protecting oneself (information, content, and data) and the harm caused by cyberbullying.  Another significant theme was warning students about the devious ways strangers can obtain your information and coerce you to become a victim.  The presentation concluded with a discussion about the importance of taking action and reporting anything suspicious or harmful that they see online to a trusted adult.

We encourage you to continue this conversation with your children about internet safety.  We are looking to have a similar presentation for parents in the near future.  Our speaker offered the following tips for parents:

  • Do not allow your child to password protect or otherwise hide their activity on any device with internet access.
  • Talk to your child about online sexual victimization and potential online dangers.
  • Do not allow your child to give out identifying information on their profile such as name, address, school name or phone number.
  • Set rules for internet use for your children.  Discuss them and make sure that they are followed.
  • Regulate the amount of time your child spends online.  Excessive use, especially late at night, may indicate a problem.
  • Instruct your children never to arrange a face-to-care meeting with someone they meet online.
  • Review messages on your child’s social media accounts and cell phone.
