The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District recognizes our students are facing increasing challenges and pressures from social media and the Internet. While we are aware there are many positives associated with these technologies, we also acknowledge that at times they may be used inappropriately. Great strides in educating our students about Internet and social media safety have been made in recent years, but we believe we can and should do even more. Our Internet and Social Media Safety (ISMS) Program continues to provide our students with important information and instruction on the use of such communications mediums, playing a key role in helping young learners make good decisions in real life and online.
Each member of our community has a role to play in helping our young people understand the consequences of questionable online behaviour and a responsibility to model good behaviour in our electronic activities. The District encourages you to explore the resources below and learn more about how we can all be good digital citizens.
Any student who has concerns about inappropriate or questionable activity should speak with a trusted adult such as parent/guardian, family member, teacher, or police officer.
Parents/Guardians who have concerns about inappropriate or questionable online activities should discuss the matter with their children and bring it to the attention of the school and law enforcement.
